Attractive original antique map showing the heart of London's City. The map shows the banks of the River Thames between Millennium Bridge and Southwark Bridge, part of the City which now contains the London Eye.

Detail is extensive, with the outlines of buildings drawn and many streets, lanes, and alleys all depicted. Churches are shown pictorially, and a view of the local parish church, St. Michael's Queenhythe, is shown below the map.

The map is dedicated to the aldermen of the two wards depicted: Sir Crisp Gascoyne and Mark Dickinson. Their coats of arms are shown in the lower left of the map.

The map was engraved for Maitland's Survey of London, which showed London in the middle of the 18th century and for which Cole engraved numerous maps.
