EPC. [Map of the Sydney Underground following Beck's iconic design]
Railway Map. Sydney Suburban and City Underground Railway. Sydney: Waite & Bull for the Commissioner for Railways, 1939. Colour-printed leaflet map, sheet 165 x 245mm. A few small stains, mainly to back.
A map of the railways serving Sydney, with the design copied from Henry C. Back's iconic London UndergrounD map of 1933, despite only four stations being sub-surface. On the back is a street map showing the entrances to those four stations (St James, Museum, Wynyard and Town Hall) and a logo copying London's red ring and 'UndergrounD' lettering. Mysteriously this is the only issue of this map: either it was unpopular with public (unlike the original) or the Commissioner for Railways did not have permission to use London Transport's designs.
