Map of Waterloo and Lambeth North, showing the various industries on or within reach of the river bank, which included timber yards, vinegar works and breweries, woollen cloth manufacture and boat building. The area inland consists mainly of farmland with few residential roads to be seen, in marked contrast to the area immediately east of it in Southwark. Astley's Amphitheatre is clearly seen just south of Westminster Bridge Road near the foot of the bridge. Map published by Richard Horwood, MDCCXCIX, extract from the Middle SW Sheet, 2nd Edition.
