Here are the details of maps for Plaistow:
We have published 3 versions of this map. Each covers the same area, from the East London Cemetery and Geere Road eastward to St Bernards Road; and from Crescent Road and Upton Park station southward to Whitwell Road. Much of the map is part of West Ham UD, but an eastern section is in East Ham. Features on the 1894 map include Plaistow station and the LTS railway works; High Street, The Broadway, Greengate Street, then a long stretch of the Barking Road, Green Street, Blind Lane; a stretch of the Northern Outfall Sewer; tramways, West Ham smallpox hospital. Many streets are only partly built up in 1894. On the reverse are street directories for The Broadway, Grafton Road, Green Street, Greengate Street, Harold Road, Hollybush Street, Queens Road.
The 1867 map shows Plaistow in its last days as a country village, and provides a fascinating contrast with the later maps.
The 1914 map, now showing the area almost entirely built up, includes a 1906 directory of Plaistow.
The map links up with London Sheets 43 Forest Gate to the north, 53 Bow to the west, and 66 Canning Town to the south; and to Essex sheet 86.07 East Ham & Barking South to the east.
