London A-Z Street Atlas - Historical Edition (Paperback)

£9.95
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

As a facsimile reproduction of the A to Z London Street Atlas, circa 1938/39, this publication shows street mapping of London as it was before the Second World War bombing and the redevelopments that followed and may be of assistance in tracing family history for that period.





The coverage extends from central London to Edgware, Whetstone, Palmers Green, Edmonton, Walthamstow, Snaresbrook, Seven Kings, Barking, Silvertown, Plumstead, Kidbrooke, Bellingham, South Sydenham, Croydon, Streatham Common, Morden, Wimbledon Common, Twickenham, Richmond, Kew, Hanwell, Ealing Broadway, Wembley, Harrow and Wealdstone. Included within the atlas is a map of the Underground Railways of London and Suburbs and location maps of Theatreland, Cinemaland, Clubland and the main Shopping Centres. The Guide to Places of Interest section includes a location map and text giving a summary of each selected place of interest with opening times and admission charges. The index to streets section includes a list of the London County Council street name changes relevant at that time.





A foldout coloured Pictorial Map of Central London is attached to the inside back cover and this map features the locations of principal landmarks and places of interest using three dimensional drawings.





The original printing of this paperback street atlas before the Second World War was in black only; however, this facsimile reproduction has been printed in colours which simulate the current condition after its ageing over many years.





The atlas is supplied in a stout protective slipcase.

The Beginning





Geographers' Map Company was founded in 1936 by Phyllis Pearsall MBE (1906-1996) who, encouraged by her father Alexander Gross, took on the ambitious task of publishing up-to-date street mapping of London. This Historical Edition is a facsimile reproduction of one of her first publications featuring the now renowned A to Z logo on the front cover.
