A note below the map states that the map contains "the boundaries of the metropolitan boroughs, the different railroads & stations, the new cemeteries, roads, docks, canals, and all modern improvements. This map is chiefly from the Ordnance Survey, the railroads and other improvements, are from the official copies, the borough of Marylebone from the survey published by Mr Britton. The whole corrected from personal observations and measurements." Borough and county boundaries are highlighted in colour, with principal roads represented in yellow.
