Mappery For the love of maps

London floor at Stanfords

Basement floor at Stanfords, Long Acre

Stanfords has been a ‘go to’ place for map lovers for over a century. Founded by Edward Stanford in 1853, they have been located in their current Long Acre premises since 1901. They are about to move to a new location in Mercer Walk and while clearing stock out of their basement found time to share this photo of a magnificent London Map that decorated the floor.

“In the midst of our move we have cleared the basement floor of our Long Acre store so the full London map is now on show. Stay tuned to see what floor maps we’ll be installing in our new store on 7 Mercer Walk “

Here’s to the next 100 years of Stanfords 🙂
