HAMMERSMITH & FULHAM 1871 - LONDON SHEET 86a
These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
The three versions of this map show how the area developed across the years. The maps each cover the same area stretching from Hammersmith Bridge and Broadway eastward to Philbeach Gardens and Earls Court Exhibition Grounds; from Hammersmith Road southward to Dawes Road. The maps therefore cover part of the centre and south of Hammersmith and north Fulham. The many features (varying of course with the different dates) include Hammersmith, Barons Court, West Kensington stations; Lillie Bridge depot, a stretch of the Thames with wharves, Fulham workhouse, Hammersmith Cemetery, Fulham Cemetery, Exhibition Grounds, tramways, Munster Road Nurseries, Hammersmith Distillery, St Paul's school, Queen's Club etc. Churches include St Paul's Hammersmith, St John's Fulham, St Peter's Fulham. The many streets include North End Road, Greyhound Road, Star Road, Dawes Road, Edith Road, Bridge Road, Fulham Palace Road and many more. The 1871 map shows a relatively rural area with many orchards; the other two maps are much more built up, a striking contrast. Each map also has extracts from directories.
The map links up with Sheets 73 Holland Park, 85 Chiswick to the west, 87 Chelsea to the east, 99 Putney Bridge to the south.
