Flood Defence of London pre. 1984

This is a set of six aerial transparancies, each 140cm x 80cm, showing the flood risk of London and the roads that would be kept clear for emergency services prior to May 1984 when the flood barrier opened. These maps used to hang on a wall in the operations room of The London Fire Brigade H.Q. until 1984 when they became redundant.
