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 vintage map of the London Underground by George Philip & Son Ltd in 1912, with London's roadways, parks and landmarks overlaid.

The best size for this map is 18x24 inches (45x60cm), but it still looks great at 12x16 inches (30x40cm) or larger sizes like 24x36 inches (60x90cm).

You might be a bit surprised at just how many underground railway stations had already been built by 1912! 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 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.

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.
