Greenwood's Map of London

Published in 1827 after surveying every square mile of London, Greenwood offered his detailed map to subscribers. You can observe in this small detail a corner of Hyde Park, Park Lane, Grosvenor Square and a part of Berkeley Square, Green Street, Upper Brook Street, and other familiar Mayfair landmarks

This online map, hosted by Bath Spa University, is interactive. Click here to find it and other information about the development of this wonderful tool.
