These Geographers’ 4 Sheet Maps of London were published in 1964 ahead of major road infrastructure development to meet the demands of increasing car ownership.
Each facsimile copy offers a fascinating snapshot of the capital at a time when the new Greater London Council boroughs were being established (GLC boundaries are shown in preparation for the April 1965 changeover). Discover districts before expansion; detail ultimately lost to future development; bus and trolleybus routes; postcode boundaries and other interesting information at a scale of 3 inches to 1 mile.
This North-West sheet covers an area from Watford in the north-west, Cockfosters in the north-east to West Drayton in the south-west and Green Park in the south-east. Historic features include the original Wembley Stadium, Film Studios in Borehamwood and Hendon Aerodrome. The M1 Motorway is yet to be built; can you trace its future route between towns and across open countryside?
