The pricked lines show the boundary of Westminster as it was in 1738. Single pricked lines are houses to be pulled down, while double pricked lines are houses to remain as they are. Shaded blocks are the new houses, with the darker border of these indicating their frontage. Westminster Bridge is annotated ''if it is so approved by Parliament''.
