PARKER, Samuel. [Plan of London in the reign of George I]
A Plan of the City's of London, Westminster and Borough of Southwark; with the new Additional Buildings. Anno 1720. London, John Senex, 1720. Coloured. 505 x 590mm.
A Georgian map of London, scale 5½' to a mile, with extensive keys under the map. The city is shown before the explosive growth of later in the century: in the West End Buckingham House (now Palace) is in the middle of fields; Bond Street is lined on the west by fields, and Berkeley House & Burlington House are the last buildings of Piccadilly; and 'Oxford Road' is the northern limit of development. In the north New River Head is in fields, as is Haberdasher's Hospital (the original site of Haberdasher's School). South of the Thames the area between Lambeth and Southwark is still mainly fields, although a little ribbon-development has begun along the roads. HOWGEGO: 65.
