This plan was published in William Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundations to the Present Day'. Its title features in cartouche at top left, with the arms of Thomas Chitty, Alderman of Tower Street ward, at left centre. Inset views of East India House and Westminster Hall appear in panel below the plan. Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 1736 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches'.
