Map of London. This is Smith's New Map of London, published by C. Smith and Son in 1860. It shows London during the reign of Queen Victoria, when the British Empire ruled large parts of the world. London was the largest city in the world, and had a population of over 3 million people. The Thames (blue) runs across bottom, while large parks (green) are also shown, such as Hyde Park (centre left) and Regent's Park (upper left). This map (36 by 63 centimetres, at a scale of 1:17,160) covered an area around 11.2 kilometres across and around 6.4 kilometres high.
