Untitled [London Underground Map] : H.C. Beck / London Underground Transport

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Harry Beck, an engineering draughtsman with an understanding of electrical circuits, created a cartographic breakthrough still used to this day. The challenge was to map the Tube and Underground system in a clear and straightforward way. Beck boldly abandoned the geographical approach and used schematic mapping instead. With the addition of colour coding, this meant that the passengers could quickly locate the correct lines and intersections for their journeys. A good example of an early printing. Very slight age staining and wear on folds.
