The title of this plan appear with compass at top right, with scale bar and key at bottom right. A red line delineates the boundaries of the Gloucester Palace District and a green one those of the Holmes Estate, with the roads paved by the Commissioners for Works outlined in purple. 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 inns and public houses, made it a popular destination for day trips from London.
