This 1827 London plan by George Frederick Cruchley, Engraver and Mapseller, is catalogued in Howgego as No. 304-B (2). The proposed new Collier Docks are shown in the Isle of Dogs, but these were not built. Millwall Docks now occupy part of this site (Howgego pp197).

The title printed on the slipcase is "Cruchley's New Plan Of London In Miniature." The title on the slipcase differs from the title printed on the plan itself, although the slipcase description does match the extent of the plan.

The plan is in good condition for its age, although there is a small piece missing from the top left of the Bermondsey & Walworth section.

Brief History Of This Plan

Sourced from Japan, this plan was probably part of a large London collection that has been split up in recent years. Hand written note on top right section records "From Wm. Robinson's Cat. No. 30, item 556. 5/- "
