The first leaflet map titled 'UndergrounD'

UNDERGROUND ELECTRIC RAILWAYS OF LONDON.

London UndergrounD Railways.
London, 1908. Johnson Riddle & Co Ltd. Colour lithograph. Sheet 220 x 270mm.

Original folds reinforced.

The first leaflet map to use the new 'UndergrounD' logotype, published shortly after the Metropolitan Railway joined a marketing scheme to promote the various London railways as a unified system.
Besides showing the defunct stations such as Down Street and Brompton Road, this map is interesting for marking the 'Franco-British Exhibition' of 1908 at White City: the area got its name from the exhibition buildings that were all white-washed. The reverse of the map is filled with timetables and lists of possible attractions for the rail traveller.
