 London Maps 

Anonymous. [A broadsheet antique map of roads between Greenwich & Woolwich]
A Plan of several Roads between Lord Cardigan's Corner on Black Heath, and Woolwich Warren. c.1760. 270 x 560mm. Some faint toning.
An odd sketch antique map, orientated with north to the top, comparing the different routes from Lord Cardigan's Corner, on the edge of Greenwich Park, through Charleton to Woolwich Warren, the old name for the Royal Arsenal. The roads, crossing Blackheath and Woolwich Common, are now Shooters Hill Road (A2 and A207) from the A205 to Greenwich Park, the A205 from Shooters Hill Road down to Woolwich, and the B210 through Charlton. 'Lord Cardigan's Corner' was Park Corner House, an addition to Montague House, the Earl of Cardigan's estate on on the edge of Greenwich Park. It would seems this map was drawn for his benefit. It appears the map is unfinished: a little vignette ship sits in the middle of blank space, roughly where the Thames would be.

Anonymous. [A design plan of the new Sand Hills Estate, St Pancras]
Plan of the Sand Hills Estate, in the Parish of St. Pancras and County of Middlesex: the Property of The Skinners Company. London: J. Shuttleworth &co., c.1830. Lithographic map with hand colour, dissected and laid on linen as issued, in morocco slipcase with 'S.C.' and 'Sandhills' in gilt. Box with some signs of wear.
A plan of the Sand Hills Estate, which straddled what is now the Euston Road, with each house delineated. The part north of the Euston Road has now been redeveloped with the British Library and King's Cross Station, but south of the road much is recognisable but renamed: Euston Road is simply 'The New Road'; Cartwright Crescent is named here 'Burton Crescent'; and Hastings Street is 'Spelhurst Street'. Judd Street and Leigh Street have retained their names. The estate was developed by The Skinners' Company, a medieval trade guild of the furriers, one of the 'Great Twelve' livery companies of London.

London UndergrounD Railways. Johnson, Riddle & Co., 1910. Wood engraving, printed in colours. Sheet 220 x 270mm.
An early folding pocket map of the Underground, published only two years after the first. This version has the background road layout removed and the key of lines moved from top left to bottom right. The mainline stations are numbered 1-13 in black blocks; other attractions are numbered 14-42 in blue (listed on the reverse), including the Japanese-British Exhibiton at White City in 1910.

Two boxes on the map advertise 'H.L. Leach, Sight-Testing Optician, 210, High Road, Kilburn', with an arrow pointing at his local station, Kilburn Brondesbury; the card folder advertises 'Fredk.
