Compiled and indexed by Chris Willis, edited by Sue Turner, 2009. This CD contains the six Board School Maps of London, produced in 1906/7 by the London Schools Authorities. They were based on the 6" Ordnance Survey stock of the time and over printed with boundaries of the areas used in controlling the schools and also with the actual schools. To provide an index into the maps, a Street index (published by West Surrey Family History Society as Research Aids 44-46) designed for the 1:2500 Alan Godfrey Maps has been included and an index to all the schools in the overlay. You can go directly from the index to the locality on the appropriate map. The "London County Council List of the Streets and Places" published in 1912 is also included on this CD. This includes all the streets as at that date, plus a list of abolished street names. There is no direct link from this to the maps, but a Reference Map is included to assist.
