9 maps that reveal London's secret history, from Shakespeare till today



Shakespeare's London
This is the earliest extant map of the British capital, created in Cologne by Georg Braun and Franz Hogenberg in 1575, when William Shakespeare was 11 years old.

It was intended as an armchair traveler's companion, to both provide instruction and "uplift the spirit"; in common with the times, objective accuracy was not a concern.

As part of the Totally Thames festival in London, an exhibition called Mapping London is running until 14 September.
