Full Description

Tri-fold passenger map of the London underground, 15 x 22.5 cm, printed in colours on card.

This was the first official passenger map to be printed since spring 1943, at least partly due to paper shortages. It was identified as issue No. 1 of 1945, when printed in February, though no second issue appeared in that year. The rectilinear design was introduced by Beck in 1941.
