Untitled [Fitzroy Square & Tottenham Court Road] : R.Horwood

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This detailed sheet with original colour from Richard Horwood's multi-sheet map of London shows the New Road from Paddington, Fitzroy Square, Tottenham Court Road and Devonshire Place in great detail. Horwood's map is described by Howgego as, "the largest and most important map of London from the eighteenth century." The survey took no less than nine years to complete, showing every house (with its street number, if it had one), alleyways, courts and even vacant plots. Among the subscribers to the map were the directors of the Phoenix Assurance Office to whose trustees and directors Horwood dedicated the map. At the massive scale of 26 inches to one mile, the insurers had a vested interest in the project - it would have repaid their investment in the map, affording detailed knowledgeof London's potential fire risks and those in need of their insurance services! This sheet has the printed date October 25th 1793 in the lower margin.
