  • Guidebook issue 15 panel passenger map, 27.8 x 34.6 cm, printed on paper in colours, set within a light blue border, blank verso. Several sections of the Underground are shown as being under construction including the extension between Paddington and Queen's Park on the Bakerloo, the Hampstead line extension between Golders Green and Edgware, and the Central London Railways line extension to Ealing Broadway.

    This geographic style Underground map retains some of the features of the 'common design' maps, most importantly the colour coding of lines. Interchange stations are prominently marked with circles and white line interconnectors. However, the surface features which had been faded into the background in the early years of UERL mapping, such as parks and roads, are restored to prominence by the use of colour. Tramway routes are also highlighted, with each tramway company also supplied with a different colour.

    Potential destinations including Olympia, Shepherd's Bush Exhibition Ground, Earls Court Exhibition Ground, Queen's Club, Chelsea, Brentford, Clapton Orient and Fulham Football Grounds, Lord's, London Zoo, Royal Agricultural Hall, Alexandra Palace, Hendon Airfield, Twickenham Rugby Ground, Oval, Royal Horticultural Hall and Crystal Palace are all picked out in yellow.
