History of East London & Essex , and East of London.
This map shows the rough boundaries of a London Parish in 1900
I am extremely grateful to David Hale for allowing me to link to his maps at the MAPCO site , a fantastic resource.
Here is the Scottish nls site (national library of Scotland) - There are over 86,000 maps as high-resolution, colour, zoomable images. The maps date between 1560 and 1961 and relate primarily to Scotland, but also maps of England and Great Britain, Ireland, and Belgium.
I love this site which allows a comparison between the mappings of 1746, 1869 and today - brilliant. At locatinglondon,org
1800 - East Ham & West Ham 1800 Map from Silvertown – a neighbourhood, by Arthur Philip Crouch 1900.
For maps of Essex, I have only found one decent site - see the Foxearth site maps ; I always welcome feedback if you know otherwise.
1852 - Watkins Commercial & General Map in 1852 (Watkins map page)
There are a considerable number of maps on the mapco site which are absolutely brilliant, e.g. in 1857

With thanks to the site at
which holds a fantastic array of other London Victorian material. And I
would probably enjoy his book
What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London
street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus
images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also
carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with
1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
