Book Description

Plan of the Thames Haven Tide Dock and Railway. A lithographed map published by Coventry of London circa 1840. On folding linen size 72 by 48 cm. Map covers an area from London to the Thames Estuary, north to Harwich and south to Folkestone and the French coast. The part of Essex south of the Eastern Counties Railway is shown in detail as is the north coast of Kent. The Thames Haven Railway line is shown running from its planned junction near Romford to the dock.
