Map of the "Great Fire" in 1765. Located in downtown London, at the intersection of Bishopsgate and Cornhill. Prime Meridian is unknown due to lack of information and graticule. There is one scale bar on the map, in scale of yards, but scale was determined by measuring the distance between the corner of Cornhill and Bishopsgate and the corner of Threadneedle street and Bishopsgate.
