Greenwich & Environs
Deptford and Greenwich
Colour printed lithograph, published by G. W. Bacon, circa 1955.
Image size: 6" x 7 3/4" plus margins.
Good condition throughout. Originally issued as two sheets, expertly spliced together.
A graphically pleasing map with a strong aesthetic, pleasing balance of colour and fine sense of lettering. The map is especially interesting for showing the now lost street pattern of Deptford, before its urban fabric and social cohesion was swept away by the vanity and pig ignorance of the 1960s planners.
