Generally good condition. The colour has been added at a later date to original publication, but is expertly executed and sympathetic to the period.
A very clear, concise and attractive map of Greenwich and its immediate environs. It clearly shows the Park, the Royal Hospital and town centre as well as Blackheath to the south. Streets are clearly named, so too, schools churces and public houses. See also, 'Weller's Greenwich' on our Blog.
