Full Description

Central London Railway passenger map, 28.5 x 35 cm, printed in colours, text on the verso which includes places of interest, connections and ticket information, advertising the expected opening of the extension to Liverpool Street in June (it opened in July); refolded, and with left hand margin tabbed and trimmed for inclusion in a guide book.

Similar in style to the UERL common design which had been in circulation since 1908, although with a chocolate rather than a green border. The UERL map gave all lines equal weighting, regardless of who owned them, to make it easier for passengers to use the network. The CLR, on the other hand, leaves the viewer in no doubt as to who made the map.
