Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and I can frame them. Contact me to discuss your specific needs. Learn more about how we source maps that you can't buy anywhere else.

Ever wondered what Underground maps used to look like, before Harry Beck famously created the modern 'circuit' map of the Underground? Well, wonder no more!

Here's a delightful and unusual art deco map of the London Underground in 1923 by MacDonald Gill. The map was given away freely - and as you can see, the British Empire Exhibition was on in Wembley at the time!

This map looks great at all sizes: 8x10 inches (20x25cm), 12x16 inches (30x40cm), 16x20 inches (40x50cm), 18x24 inches (45x60cm) and 24x36 inches (60x90cm). I can also print this map at very large sizes up to 38x48 inches (96x120cm).

You might be a bit surprised at just how many underground railway stations had already been built by 1923! Most of the central London stations are already here: Charring Cross, Bond St, Bank, Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park Corner, Knightsbridge, etc.

Many of the lines already have the same name as they have today. Bakerloo Line, Piccadilly Line, Central Line, and the District Railway are all here. Many of the colours are the same, too: Central Line is red, Piccadilly is blue, Bakerloo is brown, and City & South London Railway (which will become the Northern Line) is black.

Back in 1923 the Northern Line consisted of the Hampstead and Highgate Line and Great Northern & City Railway connecting into the City & South London Railway. The three lines would be fully integrated at Euston and Kennington by 1926.

Some lines haven't yet been built or extended. The Central Line has just been extended to Liverpool Street, but goes no further. And there's no Victoria Line or Jubilee Line yet - they opened in the 60s and 70s respectively.

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 perspex in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport. Please contact me if you would like to frame one of the larger prints for a custom order.

Our museum-quality maps are made on thick and durable matte paper. Add a wonderful accent to your room and office with these vintage map prints that are sure to brighten any environment.
