Map Of London 1868

London
This map originates from a large scale map of London compiled and engraved by Edward Weller, issued in parts as supplements to the Weekly Dispatch newspaper during 1861 and 1862. It’s a hand-coloured map, dissected and mounted on linen.

There is much life recorded on the surface of this map, as the ink splashes at the bottom of the map testify. Click on parts of the map to see an enlarged version of that section.
