This is an 18th-century copy of Ralph Treswell's 1610 plan of the property of St Bartholomew's Hospital. Although better known as a painter in his lifetime, Treswell was also a mapmaker and one of the first surveyors of the modern era. The plan features compass star and scale bar at top right, showing the Roman wall, Christ's Hospital and the properties along the way to St Bartholomew's Hospital pictorially.
