This is a print of sheet 7 of the Map of London Poverty, created by Charles Booth in 1898-9.
This map shows the historic Inner Western District of London, which today is mostly the London borough of the City of Westminster.
This part of London hasn't changed much in the past 100 years - it was very fancy back then, and it still is today. The Natural History Museum is visible - along with the giant Hyde Park and Serpentine, of course.
This map looks great at all sizes from 12x12 inches (30x30cm) to 16x16in (40x40cm) and beyond to larger sizes. It looks its best at larger sizes. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 45 inches (115cm) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 16x16 inch (40x40cm) version of this map.
The level of detail in these maps is breathtaking, with individual houses coloured to show whether they are "vicious semi-criminal" (black); "very poor" (dark blue); "poor" (light blue); "mixed" (red); "fairly comfortable" (light red); "middle class" (bright red); "upper-middle and upper class" (yellow).
Please note that the 24x24 inch map has white borders. They are very easy to snip off with scissors. Or if you are planning to frame your map, these borders will help you with framing. All other sizes look exactly like the listing images.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
