'Underground Railways of London' by Frederick Stingemore (1928). Vintage diagram of lines pocket map, paper edition, 14.0 x 16.5cm, 5.5 x 6.25 inches; Please note that this is a folding map.

This edition of the Stingemore pocket map has the Central London Railway line in Orange. More space has been used to show the Central area lines and to give more room for the Station names and only a few stations now show the initials of the mainline services from that station. Kennington Station has lost the suffix (New St) and West Acton now has the suffix 'for Hanger Hill'. Headstone Lane Station is not shown in the list of stations that go beyond North Wembley on the Bakerloo line. The reverse of the map is yellow coloured linen, with details of stations for places of interest and theatres. The date of this map is assumed to be 1928 instead of 1929 as stated in "London Transport Maps" by Burwood & Brady, because in the next edition of the map the station names are printed in the line colours, therefore on this evidence the dates of the c1928 and c1929 should be reversed.The map includes the "Middle Circle", an underground train line using the West London Railway between Latimer Road and Earls Court, passing through Uxbridge Road and Addison Road. The line closed in 1940 following bomb damage. It was not reopened until 2008 as part of the Overground network.
