Between the 1888 and the c.1912 editions of George Washington Bacon’s “New Large-Scale Ordnance Atlas of London & Suburbs”, the population of Greater London grew by more than 28% and the area loosely termed ‘London’ expanded similarly. Requiring 34 sheets at 4 inches to the mile, the later edition, now reproduced here almost to full size and in colour, enables the reader to distinguish tram from omnibus routes and to easily pick out the topographical features. Other maps, showing utilities and administrative areas, help define the structures of the world’s then largest city.
