  • The introduction of Beck's diagram did not obviate the need for geographically accurate maps, which pinpointed the location of Underground stations in the central area in relation to the surface topography.

    The lines themselves, though colour-coded, are given minimal prominence on this map so as not to disrupt the street plan. Public buildings are picked out in red, and the roundel in the border is flanked by details of theatres, cinemas, hospitals, government offices, foreign consulates and other places of interest, listed with coordinates which correspond with the grid on the map.
