John Rocque's Map of London, 1746, more formally "A plan of the cities of London and Westminster, and borough of Southwark", surveyed by John Rocque and engraved by John Pine, is a map of Georgian London to a scale of 26 inches to a mile..The map shows internal details for some buildings, such as St Paul's Cathedral, and in less densely populated areas gardens are shown. However, the detail on the map is variable over the various parts of London – in the inner city there was not room for minor roadways to be included. Churches, grand buildings and streets receive close attention but industrial buildings are neglected.. Hatching and broken lines are used to distinguish buildings, gardens, fields and woods.. Apart from the cartouches, pictorial detail is limited to trees, boats on the River Thames and the gallows at Tyburn..

If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you; but if you really make them think, they'll hate you...
