Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and can be framed. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.

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 E. G. Perman in 1928, with London's roadways, parks and landmarks overlaid.

The best size for this map is 16x20 inches (40x50cm), but you can order it at 8x10 inches or larger sizes all the way up to 40x50 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 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.
