Notes

Kelly's Directories published these Post Office maps of London, to accompany their directories, from soon after 1900 to about 1974. It has not been possible to date this example precisely but it resembles the 1935 example quoted in Boyle, 488. The railway company lines shown Here those of the four companies grouped from 1923 until nationalisation in 1948.
