The A-Z Street Atlas

The Turn Papyrus Map was drawn about 1150 BC and shows a 15-kilometre stretch of Wadi Hammamat in Egypt. It’s widely considered the first road map, because it actually shows where people could travel. The first A-Z Street Atlas was published in 1936 by Phyllis Pearsall who claims to have walked 3,000 miles cataloguing the names of the 23,000 streets of London as well as places of interest after getting lost using the latest map she could find.
