Fascinating 1940s and 50s ORDNANCE SURVEY MAPS of N.W. LONDON, Middlesex + Hertfordshire 1" to 1 Mile
Sheet no 160 LONDON N.W.
I have several of these maps published at different times - please see the list below for dates and condition.
The map includes Central and North West London out to Slough beyond Heathrow.
To the North it goes as far as Dunstable, Luton and Harpenden, including Welwyn, St Albans and Watford.
To the West it goes to Chesham and Berkhamsted and to the East to Hertford, Enfield, Dalston To the South Uxbridge and Acton and North of the Thames.
The map has lots of fascinating details - long gone farms, aerodromes, schools, hospitals, golf courses and woods.. fascinating !
The scale is 1 inch to 1 mile and it is on paper or cloth. Would look wonderful on a wall to... to help you reflect on ...Progress...
