A pamphlet map of the London Underground Railways, which, being issued five years before the iconic Beck map, is shown geographically-correct with above-ground landmarks. This has meant the further reaches of the system could not be included, so the District Line is shown as far east as Whitechapel; the Metropolitan as far north as Preston Road; Bakerloo to North Wembley; and what is now the Piccadilly Line is shown only to Alperton & Northfields, although as part of the District Line Services. In the north the Northern Line has yet to extend past Highgate (now Archway Station) and the Piccadilly Line past Finsbury Park. On the back of the map are printed tables of useful information.
