Scale 1:1,584,000.
A wooden jig-saw puzzle in sixty-three pieces from a map published by Gall & Inglis.
"Hamley's Ltd. London, Paris & Nuremburg ..."--Box lid. The box includes addresses for Hamley's stores at 86 & 87 High Holborn, but not 231 High Holborn. This probably places the date of the puzzle to after 1901, when the store at 231 High Holborn was destroyed by fire. Gall & Inglis were active at 25 Paternoster Row from 1875 to 1909.
BAC: British Art Center copy appears to be complete. Placed In original illustrated varnished wood box with sliding lid. Accompanied by 2 color photographs of the completed map and a pen and ink diagram of the map.
