The images displayed here are scans of half of each dissected section of the plan,
slightly cropped for neatness.
The average image size of the Stanford map sections is approximately 600KB. I
do apologise for the size of some of these images. The aim was to maintain a high
quality image that could be clearly read. At 56KB dial-up connection speed each
page will take about 100 seconds to fully load, although some pages (such as Walworth)
can take approximately 2 minutes to load.
Please be patient, as it is worth the wait.
