[BOWEN, Thomas, 1733?-1790] : WALBROOK WARD AND DOWGATE WARD WITH THEIR DIVISIONS INTO PARISHES ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.
[London : R. Baldwin], 1772. A fine antique map of the adjacent wards of Walbrook and Dowgate in the heart of the City of London, running north from the Thames and the site of the modern Cannon Street Station as far as Lombard Street. The area covered takes in parts of Upper Thames Street and Cannon Street, Dowgate Hill, Walbrook, St. Stephen Walbrook and the Mansion House. The map is decorated with a rococo cartouche, vignette views of St. Stephen Walbrook and St. Michael College Hill, and the coats of arms of William Nash, Lord Mayor in 1772, and Sir Richard Glyn, alderman for Dowgate Ward. Originally produced for the “London Magazine” in August 1772. Other maps in this series were engraved by Thomas Bowen and this would also appear to be his work.
