Produced in the year following the conclusion of the War of 1812, this stunning depiction of the World’s largest city at the time portrays London in a period of cultural, economic, and political transformation. London was the heart of international trade and commerce. During the early nineteenth century, railroad lines sprung out of the city into rural England, allowing greater access for the transport of goods as well as the ability for country dwellers to flock to the city in search of work in the many manufacturing plants, docks, and other industries. Its port was the largest in the World, and with the British empire spanning the globe, goods from nearly every corner of the earth were traded throughout the city.
Shipbuilding was also an important economic driver with numerous builders producing massive sailing vessels on the River Thames. Published during the Georgian Era London’s culture was known for lavish feasts, bold fashion and was the period when the Industrial Revolution began. This period also saw the emergence of a wealthy middle class that began to gain political influence even amidst the Monarchy’s control.
Perhaps no other city is as iconic as London, and this period of transition would define the next century. As industrialization spread and the Monarchy shifted from the Hanoverian Kings to the Victorian Era, Britain’s influence was felt throughout the World. This map immediately transports the viewer back in time. Produced with great detail, this is truly an authentic piece of cartographical and World history.
