This map is taken from Strype's 1754 annotated edition of Stow's 'Survey of England'. The map features title in ornamental cartouche at top centre, with a key to streets, yards, halls, courts and private properties in table below the title. A compass star appears at bottom left, and the scale bar is at bottom right. Prominent buildings and ships along the Thames are shown pictorially. First issued in 1720, Strype's ward plans were carefully updated for this edition.
