An improved plan of the cities of London and Westminster, and borough of Southwark including the new buildings, roads &c.
Cartographer: Kitching, Thomas and Parker, Henry
Medium: Engraving, coloured
Date: ca. 1774
This coloured map shows the built-up area of the City of London as a stippled pattern, with other built-up areas crosshatched. This map is a later edition of Kitching and Parker's 1765 plan, updated to include the new bridge and the approaches at Blackfriars as finally laid out.
Designed by Robert Mylne, this third bridge spanning the Thames was built between 1760 and 69. The nine semi-elliptical Portland stone arches were replaced from 1860 to 69 by the present structure of five wrought-iron arches, each faced with cast iron, and a granite pier designed by Cubitt and Carr.
