    We have published two versions of this map, showing how the area changed across the years.

    The maps cover the western end of Hounslow, from Upton Road and Cromwell Street westward along the Bath Road and Staines Road, and northward up Workhouse Lane as far as Sutton Farm. Features on the map include St Paul's church, Wellington Road North, Beavers Lane and Beavers Farm, and part of Hounslow Heath. The main feature, however, is Hounslow Barracks, where the engineer Goldsworthy Gurney demonstrated his steam carriage to the Duke of Wellington. Cavalry barracks were established here, midway between London and Windsor, in 1793 and they were expanded in the 1870s. The Hounslow & Metropolitan Railway is shown, terminating at what was then called Hounslow Barracks station; this is now part of the Piccadilly line. By the time of the 1935 revision the area was beginning to be built up, and the Great West Road had been opened, cutting across the north of the map.

    Each map includes extracts from a directory together with a specially written introduction.

    The map links up with Middlesex Sheets 20.02 Heston 1894 to the north, 20.10 Hounslow Heath 1934 to the south, 20.07 Hounslow to the east.
