‘The Weekly Dispatch’ newspaper between the years 1856 and 1862 included in each edition a map of a part of the world. During this period a total of 118 maps were issued. The engravers varied but included John Dower and Edward Weller. In 1863 ‘The Dispatch Atlas’ was published which contained a series of English county maps. The two were combined in 1865 as ‘Cassell’s Complete Atlas’. With many maps in a large scale of areas not often seen, including a number a town plans. This plan of part of west London extends from Kensal Green in the north with the Great Western Railway running just to the south. A large area of meadow separates it from Bayswater bounded by the Hammersmith and City Line. Shepherds Bush is found lower left with the top of Holland Park lower right. The West London Railway also runs through the map. The scale is remarkable with individual buildings shown and many identified. Beresiner pp. 85-7; refer Carroll no. 120.
