Edward Mogg (fl.1804-47) is one of the more prolific and successful publishers of plans of London. This plan first published in 1806 underwent 22 states according to Darlington and Howgego. It extends from Chelsea to Kilburn, Bromley and Greenwich. The boundaries of the city of London are coloured in red. For this edition the Birmingham, Great Western and Southampton railways are added. Another addition is Trafalgar Square. The London and Birmingham Railway is the world’s first intercity line opened in 1833 and is depicted as finishing at an as yet un-named Euston Station. Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Great Western Railway is depicted from a yet to be named Paddington Station. Opened in June 1838 it at first only ran to Maidenhead. In 1839 it was extended to Twyford and later in the year of this maps issue it would reach Reading. The Greenwich Railway is depicted ending at London Bridge, this was the first steam railway opened in London in 1836. A prominent Thames Tunnel is depicted which although under construction at the time and quite an attraction was not opened until 25 March 1843.
