Underground Map No 1, 1937
Colour printed map designed by H. C. Beck, published by Johnson, Riddle & Co for London Transport, 1937.
Image size: 5 3/4" x 8 3/4". External dimensions of frame: 10 3/8" x 13 2/8"
Generally very good condition throughout. Original vertical folds as issued, some minor age staining and as expected from such an ephemeral item.
The frame is double-glazed to show the diagram of the Interchange Stations Central Area on the reverse.
This very attractive map, showing the Tube with just six colours and the escalator connection between Monument and Bank prominently indicated, predates the naming of the Northern Line in August 1937.
£300.00 mounted and framed.
