A very charming and fun pictorial map of London in the style of Leslie MacDonald Gill’s Wonderground, from Regent’s Park to Elephant & Castle, and Hyde Park to Tower of London. There are two insets in the the top corners: ‘Here are the Theatres’ and ‘Here are the Cinemas’.
Loads of humorous depictions: who knew that ‘For More Cheap China’ you have to go to the Victoria and Albert Museum? Or that you can travel from Victoria ‘to Clapham Junction, the sunny south and the Continent? Or Hatton Gardens – ‘where Diamonds grow on Trees’?
NB: in the earlier edition of 1930, the decorative border and the two inset maps are missing.
