The title of this map appears in ornamental cartouche at top left, with fares of hackney coaches in tables at top- and middle-right. Fares of water ferries feature at bottom centre. The built-up area is stippled in the City of London itself, and hatched elsewhere, with the city boundaries outlined in colours. The map is a later edition of the map first issued by George Foster in 1739, updated to include the approaches to Westminster Bridge and the intended new bridge at Backfriars.
