The London Pocket Atlas of London is a fantastic, and very useful source for findn=ing your way around London. particularly in 1900. It is still  a useful aid a hundred years later, and should be considered the London A-Z od past times that never really ages.

Here, I have used the Pocket Atlas to give an idea of the areas, with thumbprints of each image. This resource is suppiled thanks to victorianlondon.org for allowing me to use this material.

There are nine maps, numbered 1 to 9; clever.

Map 1 - Hampstead, Holloway, Kentish Town, St Johns Wood, Regents Park, Camden Town

Map 2 - Hammersmith, Earls Court, Brompton, Chelsea, Fulham, Battersea

Map 3 - Stepney, Bow, Shadwell, Poplar, Limehouse, Surrey Commercial Docks, Isle of Dogs, Deptford, Greenwich

Map 4 - [Stations] Farringdon, Aldersgate, Moorgate, Broad Street, Bishopsgate, Whitechapel, Aldgate, St Pauls, Cannon Street, London Bridge, Fenchurch Street, Shadwell

Map 5 - [Stations] St James Park, Charing Cross, Waterloo, London Bridge , ++ Bermondsey, South Lambeth, Kennington, Walworth, Peckham

Map 6 - Kensal Green, [Stations] Paddington, Marylebobe ++ Regents Park, Notting Hill, Kensington, {Hyde Park},  Brompton

Map 7 - Mayfair, [Stations] Charing Cross,  Victoria, Waterloo

Map 8 - Regents Park, [Station] Euston, St Pancras, Kings Cross, Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Road, Holborn

Map 9 - Highbury, Stoke Newington, Kingsland, Dalston, Lower Clapton. Homerton, Hackney Wick, Hackney Marsh, Hoxton, Old Ford

 

Enjoy, this is a seriously good pocket atlas, even in modern day times.

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!
