This is a charming old map of the London Underground from 1924 with bus, tram and railway connections.

The original title was 'How to get to Wembley', perhaps to help people get to the British Empire Exhibition which was located in Wembley in 1924.

The author of the map is Bravington's Ltd, a jewellery shop. Around the edge of the map are engravings of popular (and quite charming) diamond engagement rings. Back then you could get a diamond engagement ring from just £4...!

The best size for this map is 18x24 inches (45x60cm), but you can order it at 12x16 inches or larger sizes all the way up to 37x50 inches (100x125cm).

You might be a bit surprised at just how many underground railway stations had already been built by 1928! Most of the central London stations are already here: 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.

The Northern Line didn't quite exist though - it was still called the Hampstead and Highgate Line, connecting into the City & South London Railway.

Some lines haven't yet been built or extended. The Northern Line has only made it to Clapham, but would soon extend to Balham, Tooting and beyond. The Central Line stops at Liverpool Street. 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.
