The A to Z of Edwardian London


Between the 1888 and c.1912 editions of Bacon's maps, Greater London's population grew by more than 28% and the area loosely termed 'London' expanded similarly. The later map, reproduced here, enables the reader to distinguish tram from omnibus routes and to pick out easily the topographical features.

Other maps, showing utilities and administrative areas, exhibit the structures of the world's then largest city. Includes an introductory essay by M H Port.
