London Underground tube map, 1910

An early example of a map from the then "Underground Group" who owned the District, Bakerloo, Piccadilly and Charing cross railways seen here - and who had managed to get the then still separate Central London, City & South London Railways, and the Metropolitan to agree to joint publicity hence their appearance on this map.

 

This is a topographic version before the 1933 Beck diagram straightened everything out - and lost the background detail. It is also of interest in that it amongst the first showing the the "UndergrounD" lettering, introduced in 1908, and that was to become a part of the graphic identity of the underground for many years.
