This pocket map of London based on Rocque's map of 1748. The title appears along the top, with the built-up area in the City of London described by stippling, and other built-up areas by crosshatching. The city boundaries are outlined in colour. The map shows the proposed new bridge at Blackfriars, but not the approaches. Designed by Robert Mylne, this third bridge to span the Thames was built between 1760 and 69. The nine semi-elliptical Portland-stone arches were replaced from 1860 to 69 by Cubitt and Carr's present structure of five wrought-iron arches faced with cast iron and a granite pier.
