Portsoken Ward Being Part Of The Parish Of St.Buttolphs Aldgate : J. Stow / R. Blome / J. Strype

The easternmost ward of the City of London, containing Petticoat Lane and the beginning of the Whitechapel Road. John Stow's "Survey" appeared first in 1598 and remained the major reference source on the city's history for decades. However, it was not until around 1700 that steps were taken to produce an up-dated edition with maps illustrating the areas described. Richard Blome (1641-1705) was charged with preparing a series of ward plans, copied from the detail of the recently published large-scale map of London by John Ogilby and William Morgan, frequently at a larger scale, thus with more clarity, and with major buildings shown pictorially in profile as "uprights". The plans were finally published in John Strype's "Survey Of The Cities Of London And Westminster ... Written At First By John Stowe ...", of 1720, and re-issued, with some minor amendments in the second edition of 1754/5. These are attractive and detailed records of parts of the city which, despite time and the Blitz, retain much of their ancient character and recognisable street patterns.
