*Edward Wallis took full control of the family business after the death of his father in 1818. The first London railway, the London and Greenwich Railway was opened between 1836 and 1838. No railways are shown on this map, thus dating it prior to 1836. The Iron Rail Road, from Croydon to Wandsworth is figured - this was opened partly in 1802 and partly in 1803. It was an iron plateway for horse-drawn commercial transport but it could not generate sufficient income and closed in 1846.

E. Wallis. 42 Skinner Street, Snow Hill. London. Engraved by T. WOODMAN & H. MUTLOW.
