Description

Popularized by Sweeney Todd, the ‘demon barber’ who resided there in the Victorian Era, Fleet Street of London actually has much older origins. It’s named after the River Fleet, and was an important east/west thoroughfare connecting London to the City of Westminster with its earliest iterations dating back to the Roman era.

This charming pictorial map shows the famous street in the 20th century, with numerous annotations and illustrations highlighting its historical composition and notable highlights.

The map was engraved and published by J.P. Sayer in 1943 as one of several monthly issues comprising the Survey of London, part of Strand Magazine.
