Description: Line engraving, titled: ‘A map of Lime Street ward. Taken from ye last surveys & corrected (1754).’ This plan was published in Strype’s 1755 annotated edition of Stow’s 1598 ‘Survey of the Cities of London and Westminster’. The plan’s title features in a banner at top left, with compass star at middle left and scale bar at bottom right. A key to streets, yards, squares and public places appears in a panel at top right. Strype’s ward plans were first published as a fifth edition to Stow and Strype updated them for his 1755 sixth edition.
