Notes

Rare and detailed plan of St Pancras.

The plan is orientated with north to the right, and extends west to east from the Royal Zoological Gardens, to the Euston Station and north to south from Highgate to University College London. The plan is coloured according to wards and has a key to ecclesiastical districts to the upper left.

Large scale Victorian plans are particularly rare, the present plan is no exception. We are only able to trace one institutional example, that in the British Library.

Approximately 5 statue miles to 1 inch.
