This plan was taken from Strype's 1754 annotated edition of Stow's 'Survey of the cities of London and Westminster'.  The plan's title features in banner at top left and in cartouche at bottom right. The compass star appears at bottom left, with scale bar at bottom right and the keys to streets, yards, halls, courts and private properties in tables down both sides of the plan. The Royal Exchange and other prominent buildings are shown pictorially. First published in 1720, Strype's ward plans were carefully updated for this edition.
