Where can I find maps of Bermondsey SE1 & SE16 showing East Lane SE16.

There is a transport bookshop/model shop in Lower Marsh next to Cubana ( I can't think of the name) they sell the old ordnance survey maps and had some of the areas you're looking at. I guess one of the larger Southwark libraries of archives have some too, probably worth a call before you go.

Hi Leah

Not sure if this is any good but East Lane in the 1940s appears on this map from this website.

Mapco has lots of old London maps available online.

The Design Museum has maps from (I think) 1751 and 1801.

You can find an online version here

there's also a map shop in Greenwich, it's on the south side of the 'market square', at the end of the entrance way to the covered market.

I'd agree on the Mapco site. It's a wonderful resource.... and I think they should restore some of the old names. I particularly like the idea of one end of Gt. Suffolk St. being restored to Dirty Lane. :D

I picked up facsimile Ordnance Survey maps from 1894 & 1914 in WH Smith in Lewisham - they're printed by Alan Godfrey maps in Gateshead, they might be able to order them for you? Fascinating as they list all the different businesses on the back.
