Museum no. E.721-1993

The first Underground map to combine lines run by several companies was published in 1907. This version follows the style of the 1908 issue with its attractive 'tiled' logo. The map seems geographically accurate when compared to Henry Beck's scheme , but in fact the Metropolitan line has been flattened to accommodate the text box.
