Map of London. Map of Routes No. 1. Map of Routes No. 2. Underground Railways of London. Port of London River and Docks Cruises
London Transport, Metropolitan Railway, Port of London Authority, London 1934 - 4 fold-out maps and 1 leaflet. London Underground map by Harry Beck. Beginnings of a tear at one fold on the railway map. Colours still bright. Corner dog-eared on Map of Routes No. 1. Inkstamp of ticket seller (Frames' Tours Ltd.) on leaflet. The London Underground map is undated, but it shows Harry Beck's iconic, geometric design and the Piccadilly line completed to Cockfosters station, suggesting it, like the other maps in this collection, was made in 1934. Other lines shown include District, Bakerloo, Edgware, Highgate & Morden, Metropolitan, Great Northern & City, and East London. The only difference between the two fold-out bus maps seems to be the quote featured on the cover. 1934 also featured the introduction of the bus shelter, a welcome development for riders. The railway map includes metropolitan, tube & district and other railways in a geographical format, plus the locations of local venues, mostly sports-related. The back lists many more places of interest along with the closest station. The leaflet advertises the schedule for a tour boat that left from Tower Pier.
