What would happen if you made some maps in an old fashioned style, but added modern buildings? This is what.

Designed by Hampshire based artist, Marcus Dobbs, there are views of the City of London, Bankside, Southwark and Westminster to choose from.

From a distance, they look like just 3D perspective maps of London with some key buildings highlighted, but when you get closer, you realise all is not what it seems.

Most of the older street layout is preserved and the map features much older buildings around street level — in the perspective style similar to the Agas Map of 1561.

They’re the sort of decorative maps that would look good in a local office or your home.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
