Start   Site Map   Contents   Key Map   Street Index

At the top of every page are links to the following:-

The Start page - the introduction.

The Site Map - lists and links to every page in the book, plus places you cannot get to from anywhere else.

The Contents page - lists and links to every Map in the book. It looks as much like the original as possible. Links become highlighted in Yellow as you hover over them.

The Key Map - an overview map linked to all 64 (sectional) Street Maps. Click on a numbered square to go to that sectional Map. Once on a Map, move to an adjacent Plate by clicking on the edge (for up, down or sideways) or a corner (diagonally).
If you move straight up or diagonally up you will arrive at the bottom of the next page. If you move in any other direction you will arrive at the top of the next page.

The Street Index - links each place to it's sectional Street Map. Jump to a letter using the A-Z index. Then search for the address you want using the scroll bar, or press F3 or Control & F (find). If you need to go back to the top of the page, click on a "Top" link.
Use these pages exactly as you would the index in a book of maps. Take a note of the square and then click the Yellow highlighted link to go to the relevant Plate.

You can check the Index with scans of the original, but they are not linked to the maps.

The Introductory and Special Maps and Plans can be reached via the Contents or Site Map pages.

Each page of the map opens in the same window, so that you can use your browser's "back" button to retrace your route. The few links to external websites should open in a separate tab.

Every browser can adjust the size of the text, some can zoom the maps. To see more of a map, press function key F11 to turn "Full Screen" on/off.

___________________

Some of the maps do not exactly match their opposite page and some appear slightly skewed. I have adjusted these as much as possible but the problem mostly lies with the original print, not the scanning process. I have deliberately not attempted to repair the general wear and tear and rust coloured stains or foxing, nor have I tried to remove pencil marks, in case of irreparable damage.

The original index used a slightly idiosyncratic alphabetical order, but I have left it in the same order. The production process necessitated removing some punctuation, in particular full stops from the "Postal Districts" and I have expanded abbreviations (Rd. Gdns. Yd. etc.).

Every map is a piece of History. This map is also a very personal part of my family's History.

I have often used it to trace addresses that no longer exist and the frustration of trying to read the small print in a fragile book led me to produce this version.

Every electronic map has drawbacks. Ideally it would be one huge sheet, scalable, searchable, lightning fast, with an index of pinpoint accuracy and big enough to see. Much like Google Maps - if only!

Within the confines of my available time, ability and software I have produced this compromise. The objectives were clarity, simplicity and speed, whilst trying to retain something of the look of the original.
