This plan was published in William Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundation to the Present Day'. The title features in a cartouche at top centre, with the arms of John Porter, Alderman of Lime Street, at top right. The scale bar is at bottom right, compass star at bottom left, and an illustrated view of the facade of Leadenhall market at top left. Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's plans, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches' of 1736.
