Earls Court Terrace, where a farm stood until the 1860s, is indicated at the bottom of the sheet on the south side of the turnpike road. The White Horse Inn is depicted on the north side of the road in plan and elevation. Before the advent of the railway, inns were the travel centres of London. With their large courtyards, they were able to provide not only refreshment and lodging for travellers, but also stabling and repairs for wagons and coaches and storage facilities for merchants.
