This map, commissioned and sold by the Daily Telegraph newspaper, was designed by N. V. Gray. It depicts the route the carriage processions took on the way to the Abbey; Princess Elizabeth and her father King George Vi travelled in the magnificent Irish State Coach. Crests of London’s boroughs border this delightfully coloured map.
