  • The British Empire Exhibition originally ran between April and November 1924, but it was not a financial success, and the decision was taken to reopen it after a winter break, with some variations. J.C. Betts’ map was created for this new, 1925 season. He was a founder member of the Clement Danes Studio, and he designed an elegant map of the central area for the Underground Group, issued in Winter 1924/25 and Summer 1925.
