The ‘Special Maps’ are fascinating and hold a wealth of information. Some of these display the Wards of the City of London, Postal Districts, Water, Electric and Gas Supplies, Underground Map, Sports Grounds, the Port of London, River Thames Wharves, Fire Brigades etc. A fascinating item. Provenance: with the ink stamp on the verso of the title page and all maps of the Edmonton Public Library.
