Putney Bridge in 1894 in a fascinating series of reproductions of old Ordnance Survey plans in the Alan Godfrey Editions, ideal for anyone interested in the history of their neighbourhood or family. Three versions for this area have been published to show how it developed across the years. The maps each cover the same area, stretching from Erpingham Road eastward to Chiddingstone Street, and from Reporton Road southward to Hotham Road. Much of Fulham is coverered, including (in 1913 version) Fulham Palace, Craven Cottage football ground, The Warren, St James Home penitentiary, Hurlingham Club Grounds, Hurlingham House, Parsons Green, St Dionis church, Putney Bridge and Parsons Green stations, All Saints church, St Etheldreda's church, Fulham Theatre. Features on the Putney side include St Mary's church, Leaders Gardens, All Saints church, Putney Hospital, Polo Grounds, Putney Pier. The two earlier maps are obviously less built up but the 1865 map is especially attractive showing many gardens. Various street directory extracts are included on the reverse of the maps.

About the Alan Godfrey Editions of the 25” OS Series:
Selected towns in Great Britain and Ireland are covered by maps showing the extent of urban development in the last decades of the 19th and early 20th century. The plans have been taken from the Ordnance Survey mapping and reprinted at about 15 inches to one mile (1:4,340). On the reverse most maps have historical notes and many also include extracts from contemporary directories. Most maps cover about one mile (1.6kms) north/south, one and a half miles (2.4kms) across; adjoining sheets can be combined to provide wider coverage.
