About Atlas of London and Suburbs, 1917

This atlas includes fairly large-scale maps of London and its environs, with smaller-scale maps for railways and other sites. It also includes population figures, a street index, map index, public buildings, theatres, and other information.

This is an image-only database.

Maps, atlases, and gazetteers are essential tools for family historians. Maps may be either topographical (emphasizing land forms) or historical (emphasizing historical events) in nature, though either type can show cultural features, such as the town and creek names that are so important for research.
