Stanford’s Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs

MAPCO's current big project is another copy of Stanford’s Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs, this time from the 1870s.

The scans were completed and digitally prepared for display in January. The web pages are currently being prepared, and place names are being transcribed from the map images.

This will be the third copy of Stanford's London map displayed on the MAPCO website, which, along with Weller's 1868 map of London, provide a wonderful snapshot of the Metropolis throughout the 1860s and 1870s.

Work restrictions make progress on some map projects quite slow, but I am optimistic that this map should be on display by the end of March.
