Metropolitan Railway and Connections [G.3583/100M] by Robert Hope Selbie (c.1930). Antique London Underground system map, 34.0 x 42.5cm, 13.25 x 16.75 inches; Please note that this is a folding map.

Metropolitan Railway And Connections map; a folding geographic style map on paper, issued by the Metropolitan Railway. The map shows the Underground group lines overprinted in blue and the Metropolitan Railway in red with a red border. Stations are marked by circles, with only one circle used to represent an interchange between lines, station names are all printed in black. Most of the Metropolitan Railway is shown in its entirety, however it is not to scale with the rest of the lines, and the section to Verney Junction and Brill has been compressed in order to fit it onto the map. Some of the Underground lines are drawn in their entirety, some of the branch lines are ended prematurely, with an arrow used to indicate the continuation of a line. Down Street Station is still shown (closed 1932). Features such as exhibitions, football & cricket stadiums and greyhound tracks are marked in red, and roads, the River Thames and parks are also included. The Chiltern Hills have been drawn as a prominent feature on this map and the site of golf courses adjacent to the Metropolitan Railway have been indicated by a red flag symbol. Main line railways routes are marked with brown lines, however some of the lines are incomplete. On the reverse there are details about London theatres, shops and stores, main line railway connections, and places of interest. There are also descriptions and pictures of villages and towns served by the Metopolitan Railway, and information about how the Metro serves London. The front cover is red and has the Metropolitan Railway logo as a heading. The map is attributed to Robert Hope Selbie, who died in 1930. Lambeth (North) station appears without the brackets around the word North, which indicates that the map dates from no earlier than 1927, when the name of the station was changed.
