Zooming the above image works best if one clicks the “full screen” icon at the far right of the “slider bar” in the image.

In 1924 Stanley Kennedy North drew this map of the British Empire Exhibition, 1924. It also shows the rail access to the showground and displays the underground system in a manner which is halfway between the geographical and the schematic sort of transport mapping. In this it seems that SKN is halfway between MacDonald “Max” Gill’s Wonderground and Frank Pick’s famous map for London Transport.
