The title and compass of this plan feature at top right, with scale bar and key at bottom right. The boundaries of the Gloucester Palace District and Holmes Estate are outlined in red and green respectively. The development of Kentish Town as a predominantly middle-class residential suburb began in the 1840s and the area lost the rural charm that had, along with its many inns and public houses, made it a popular destination for day trips from London.
