Bartholomew’s Plan of London – 1921

As mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ve been georeferencing some old maps given to me by friends of mine.

This map shows Bartholomew’s Plan of London. It doesn’t have a formal copyright on it, but if I’ve understood the text in the sleeve correctly, this map is 100 years old, it makes a reference to the Great War, “then and now” followed by the years 1914 and 1921.

Use the map type controls in the top left to switch between Google’s tilesets and Bartholomew’s Plan of London. I’d recommend trying fullscreen mode (top right) also.

I have many other maps to georeference and convert to tilesets which I’ll upload in time.
