Cruchley (George Frederick)
from the Ordnance Map of the Country 14 Miles round London,
London, George Frederick Cruchley, 1852.
first edition of Cruchley’s map stated to have been published by G. & J. Cary, now republished by Cruchley, though all later updates remove the Cary association. It extends from Enfield to Banstead and Ewell, and from Hayes to Hornchurch. Despite the date of 1852, it omits any reference to the Crystal Palace in any location, though it appears at Sydenham Hill in the subsequent edition of 1853. The Great Northern Railway is shown to Kings Cross,.
