London 1799*

Richard Horwood's PLAN of the Cities of LONDON and WESTMINSTER the Borough of SOUTHWARK and PARTS was the largest and most ambitions map of its time. It was printed on 32 sheets on which Horwood intended to show every house and its street number: although he did include every house the numbers are not complete. It was drawn for one of the many independent fire brigades that served London and remained in print from 1792 to 1819.
