Plan of the parish of PADDINGTON in the County of Middlesex 7
Surveyor: Gutch, George
Medium: Engraving, coloured
The development of Paddington began at the end of the Napoleonic wars, when the Bishop of London granted permission for building on his estate north of Hyde Park. Under Gutch's supervision, works continued into the 1850s, extending to Bayswater and the Edgware and Harrow Roads.
