This plan was published in Strype's 1755 annotated edition of Stow's 'Survey of the Cities of London and Westminster'. Its title features in cartouche at top right, with scale bar at bottom right and compass star at middle left. The key to streets, yards, halls and churches appear in panel down the right side of the plate, with the Navy Office and other prominent buildings shown pictorially. First published in 1720, Strype's ward plans were carefully updated for this edition.
