London Street Views 1840 London Street Views 1840

Between 1838 and 1840 London publisher John Tallis created a series of 88 pamphlets titled a 'Tallis's London Street Views'. These guides illustrated London's main commercial streets (or parts thereof) and included a street history, advertisements, a local map and, most useful, an elevation street view and business directory. Eighty-seven of these guides are in the Museum of London's collection.

This website displays the elevation views of 35 of the guides (from the West End) and we would like your help in transcribing the business directories. Help us create the first searchable business directory of early Victorian London that includes street views.
