Price: £24.99

TITLE/CONTENT OF MAP: 'The Queen of Bohemia's Palace or Craven House, in Drury Lane; as it appeared in the year 1800 ; view of part of Craven House in Wych Street, the site of the Olympic Theatre'

The plan shows the estate to the east of the south part of Drury Lane and what was then Wych Street. Much of this area was substantially reconfigured in the early 20th century to accommodate the construction of Kingsway and the Aldwych. Craven House was located approximately on the west side of the junction between Kingsway and Aldwych.
