    The maps each cover the same area, stretching from Holloway Prison eastward to Green Lanes and Highbury New Park, and from Finsbury Park station southward to Aberdeen Park and Holloway station. The GNR main line runs north-south through the map, with many sidings, and part of the Canonbury Branch; Finsbury Park and Holloway stations are included, and the 1914 map has Drayton Park station. Railway information is detailed, with tracks, signal posts, air shafts etc. West of the railway is much of Holloway, including Holloway Road, the prison (left blank), Seven Sisters Road, Hornsey Road, St Mary's Workhouse Schools, West London Union Workhouse. East of the railway is part of Highbury around Highbury House and Highbury Park, while north of this is a detached part of Hornsey, South Hornsey, incl Brownswood Park; the 1869 map has part of the New River here.
