Kemble, Gloucestershire, to its mouth at the Thames Estuary and Nore Light, as the course of its ancient river name Isis runs through the beautiful Thames Valley towns of Ashton Keynes, Lechlade, Oxford, Abingdon, Wallingford, Reading, Henley-on-Thames, Marlow, Maidenhead, Windsor & Eton, Staines and Weybridge, before entering the Greater London area., where much of today's west, south and east London were then still separate villages. Major Roads and Railways are shown as is the Thames tunnel, then still under construction (begun 1824) For those who enjoyed the Jubilee pageant and other activities along the length of the river flowing with liquid history, this is a great and scarce item.
