    Trolleybus services were introduced to London in 1931 and phased out between 1954 and 1962, making this one of the last maps to show them. It was printed in March 1962, and the last London trolleybus ran in May. A yellow label pasted in the bottom right hand corner of the map updates it with the latest trolleybus routes to be replaced by diesel buses.
