Quarter mile radius map of Goodge Street station, 100 x 62.5 cm, printed in colours, trivial edge-wear affecting red border, laid on linen as issued.
Stanford’s was a firm of map publishers as well as map retailers until after the Second World War, with a lucrative Ordnance Survey contract. In the late 1920s Stanford’s began supplying the Underground with small runs of maps for local display, based on the Ordnance Survey and confined to a quarter-mile radius from each station. They were printed in very low numbers: in this instance just 50 examples. Goodge Street houses a Second World war deep-level shelter, one of several locations used by Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force during preparations for D-Day.
