The nineteenth-century saw immense growth in London as the city became a truly global hub financially, culturally, and politically. By 1850 London had grown to be five times larger than New York City and was the second-largest city in the world behind Beijing. The Great Exhibition of 1851 was held in the iconic city. It was one of the most famous events of the nineteenth century. It was held in Hyde Park from May to October and was the first in a series of World’s Fairs which would feature the latest inventions and improvements as well as cultural exhibitions and culinary events.
Produced and published by noted London-based Josiah Whitbread, this depiction bears a unique style, classic aesthetic, and distinctive flourishes. As the world’s largest port, London drew immigrants from across Western Europe, Ireland, and Eastern Europe. As the city expanded, efforts to build one of the first subways began, and the iconic London Underground began in 1860. Though the first true ‘tube’ to be constructed would not start until 1890.
The British Museum was completed in 1852 after twenty-nine years of construction. Because of the global reach of Britain in the nineteenth century, London became one of the most contemporary cities in the world. Theater also flourished during this time and saw the establishment of numerous venues, including the Canterbury Music Hall, which was completed in 1852. This is an authentic piece of British cartographical history and creates an indelible bond between the past and present.
