POSTAL DISTRICT MAP OF LONDON
Medium: Lithograph, coloured
This map was issued as a supplement with the Illustrated Times of 21 March 1857, showing the division of the city in the ten post codes. The title appears at top centre, with lists of places and corresponding postcodes down both sides of the plate. A note from the Postmaster General is included, explaining the division of the city in post codes and encouraging the public to use the post code when addressing letters. The map appears to be an exact copy of Davies' 'Map of the British Metropolis'.
