Hughes 1886

A new parliamentary & courts atlas of Great Britain & Ireland

Brightly printed names and boundaries of the new Divisions, but not so thickly that detail is obscured.

Scale correct at 10 miles = 50mm, or 5.1 miles/inch, ie 1:325,000.

They must have used an old map, with some random updating of railway lines: pre-1870 the lines are shown; the Walthamstow (opened 1870), Clacton (opened 1882) and Shoeburyness (opened 1884) lines are not shown, whereas the Barking to Upminster (opened 1885) and Upminster to Grays-Thurrock (opened 1892) lines are shown.
