A-Z Victorian London
The London Topographical Society's A to Z series consists of seven books, which provide fully-indexed maps of London at roughly 100 year intervals. Each reproduces a key map of the period. The indexes allow users to identify the position of streets and buildings, in some cases right down to small courts and alleys. They appeal to anyone interested in the development of London and are invaluable for those researching family history.
This book enables readers to find their way around London as it was, the index showing every street, road, lane, wharf or public building. The area covered reaches Mill Hill to the north, Chislehurst and New Bromley to the south, Abbey Wood to the east and Southall to the west, as a result it covers most of today's surburban areas. Useful detail includes banks, theatres, insurance houses, statues and named terraces.
The atlas consists of 59 map sheets from Bacon's New Large-Scale Ordnance Atlas of London and Suburbs, published in 1888. Two complete maps are provided, 34 map sheets covering the central area at 9" scale and 25 covering the wider area at 42" scale. This volume will be invaluable for historians, geographers and genealogists of the Victorian era. A3 size approx.
