This map was produced after the Reform Bill of 1831/32 that created the metropolitan boroughs of London. The title appears at bottom right, with scale bar at bottom left, London arms of at top left, and arms of Westminster at top right. Also at bottom left is a list of 'liberties' - the name given to areas exempt from the jurisdiction of the country sheriff, being subject to a separate commission of the peace (in this case royal and governmental authorities).
