This map was first published in 1832. Extending from Hammersmith in the west to the East India docks in the east and Pentonville in the north to Walworth in the south. This fine map extends further west than many of the period to take in developments at Hammersmith. London was rapidly extending at this time and that rate would increase further as the railways began to spread but it was still only a short walk from Hyde Park to open fields.
George Frederick Cruchley (1796 - 1880) was a map publisher in the middle part of the 19th century, setting up his business in the early 1820's. His maps were clear and well engraved and he was very successful throughout his business career, finally selling his stock in 1877, three years before his death.
In London in 1833 a law was passed that limited to 12 hours a day that children 12 and over could work. Children 9 to 13 could only work for 9 hours a day. In America Virginia rejects the abolition of slavery.

We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.
We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.
Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
