The Agas Map of London, the Great British capital.

The original version of this plan was over six foot in length and nearly two and a half feet wide in full display. Your stunning replica has been reduced to scale making it of a lot more manageable size, an ideal gift for a loved one or for yourself, as it makes the perfect addition to any home or workplace.
