1920 Bacon’s Old Pocket Map of London and Environs


An intrinsically detailed plan of London and its surroundings first published by Bacon in 1920. The map shows the greater London area from the north westerly Amersham to Seven Oaks in the southeast, and from the north easterly Daguam Park across to Worplesdon in the south west of the capital. It further tracks the route of the infamous River Thames alongside train and tram routes, streets, bus lines, parks, roads and notes principle buildings. Bacon, who died 2 years after this map was first published, was a London based publisher who worked in the mid to late 19th century. The famous cartographer was born in America but moved to the Great British capital where he came to specialise in the drawing and publication of London city maps.
