SOUTH BANK/WATERLOO 1746 MAP. Cuper's Gardens view (now Waterloo Road) 1834

Price: £48.99

TITLE/CONTENT OF MAP: 'View in Cuper's Gardens, Lambeth; a plan of Cuper's Gardens with part of the Parish of Lambeth, in the year 1746'

The map shows in detail the layout of the areas now know as Waterloo and the South Bank appartently in 1746, although it states that it is "showing also" the more recent roads including Waterloo Bridge (opened in 1817) and the Waterloo Bridge Road. Street names recognisable to day include Stamford Street and "New Belvedere Road". Part of today's Waterloo station would be located at the bottom of the map. The former "Cuper's Gardens", depicted in the view at the top, would be located approximately where the BFI IMAX roundabout is today. The Royal Festival Hall, National Theatre, Queen Elizabeth Hall, IBM and the London Television Centre, the Jubilee Gardens and the Shell Centre are all located today within the area covered by the map.
