Maps of Euston Grove through Wallis’s Guide for Strangers through London (1813-1841)
Wallis’s Guide for Strangers through London was an essential tool for visitors to London. Successive editions (1813, 1821, 1826, 1841) allow the historian to trace the growth of many parts of the city, including the area north of the Paddington to Islington Road. The area named “Euston Square” came into being between the 1813 and 1821 editions. The Euston Grove terminus for the London and Birmingham Railway first appears in the 1841 edition.
