Stanford's Library Map Of London [9 - Kensington, Notting Hill] : E. Stanford

This sheet of a highly detailed 24-sheet map of London was coloured to show geological detail by James B. Jordan. With street names and detail visible beneath the colour wash, this is a fascinating series showing detail of many parts of present-day London, then villages on the outskirts, or just absorbed into the urban sprawl of the Victorian city. The map is sheet 9 (of 24) of Stanford's large and magnificent "Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs". It shows Kensington, Holland Park, Notting Hill, Shepherds Bush and Bayswater in good detail. Kensington Palace, Holland House and the International Exhibition building next to the Royal Horticultural Society gardens - the site now houses the Albert Hall, the Royal Geographical Society and the Natural History Museum, amongst other buildings. Although much of this area of London is shown on the map to be relatively urban, a number of market gardens are also depicted. The map is drawn on a scale of six inches to the mile. A good opportunity to acquire a detailed map of this area of London. A brief key to the colours. Light Greyish Brown - London Clay. Bright Tan - Gravel & Sand. Very pale Beige - Alluvium. Blue - Woolwich & Reading Beds.
