Davies’s New Map of the British Metropolis, the Boundaries of the Boroughs, County Court Districts, Railways, and Modern Improvements,
London, Edward Stanford, 1875.
an attractive example of the amended version of this map, first issued in 1854 to incorporate the newly opened Crystal Palace in Sydenham with a southern extension to Mitcham Common and South Norwood, from the original 1852 version’s limit of Clapham Common. The other compass point extremities remain Highgate, Chiswick and Plaistow, and the map retains the circle of 4 miles radius from Charing Cross and the half-mile interval markers from London Bridge along the Thames. This later update includes Liverpool Street station for the first time, and the publisher’s new address at 55 Charing Cross,.
