See the Mapping London exhibition

The Thames Festival is dead. Long live Totally Thames, a month of vaguely Thames-related events, some of which have even been put on specifically. Today sees the opening of Mapping London at the Gallery at OXO at OXO Tower Wharf, an exhibition of rare maps of London from 1572 to 2013.

Curator Daniel Crouch is better known as the man behind Daniel Crouch Rare Books in Bury Street, SW1, and is one of the world’s leading specialist map dealers, himself collecting and selling maps since the age of 16. Here Daniel brings together a number of interesting maps from the 1572 Braun and Hogenberg map, the oldest known map of London to survive intact, to a contemporary map of underground London from last year.
