Folding map of Regency London. Hand-coloured sections, laid down on linen. Title at top right. Explanation and Scale at top left. Recorded as Howgego
No. 268 (2).
This map of London has been extended east by an extra sheet 17cm (6¾") wide, extending the map from Stepney as far east as Greenwich Marsh. This is a highly decorative map, although it has some offsetting (transfer of the image from one part of the map to the other due to folding).
The map illustrates proposals for the "Intended Markets" on the eastern side of Regent's Park
(which became the Cumberland & Clarence Markets); the Intended Docks east of London Docks
; the location of the soon-to-be-constructed Regent Street
, running from Oxford Street to Piccadilly; and many other proposed improvements. It also has nice detail of Kensington Gardens
