A superb large scale map of the east end of London specifically focused on the docks. It extends from the City on the left to the East India Docks at present day Canning Town. The West India Docks are now the site of Canary Wharf now filled with skyscrapers. To the west of that is Limehouse and London Docks now filled in as Wapping. It displays the proposed roads to connect the City with the Ports of London. It is the work of the surveyor James Walker, engraved by John Roper and published by Robert Wilkinson.

Plan of the Late Improvements in the Port of London, with the Roads, made or projected for connecting the same to the City
