    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 100 examples. The design also makes striking use of the bar and circle roundel and Edward Johnston typeface.
