No. 2 – 1972
173/1162M/500,000
The reference code 173 indicates that the map was drawn in January 1973, however the front cover retained the designation No.2 – 1972. There are two versions of this edition: one has STRAND STATION CLOSED overprinted on the diagram; the other is missing this note.


No. 1 – 1973

673/2268M/1000M
This edition has the note
STRAND STATION
CLOSED
JUNE 1973 to 1976
below the diagram, to the left of the legend, and Strand station is struck through in red both on the diagram and in the Station Index on the back.

5.75/2315M/1,000M



No. 2 – 1975
9.75/2910M/1,000M
This unique cover is somewhat suggestive of the 2003 Tube map with its blue band, however in this case it is located at the bottom, rather than the top as on the later design.


No. 2 – 1975
1.76/1103M/500M
Although this folder and its reprinting are both labelled No. 2 – 1975, their print codes indicate that the diagrams inside were drawn in 1976.

No. 1 1979
1.79/1083M/1,000,000
For some inexplicable reason, London Transport issued the next seven maps over a period of two years without changing the date and number on the cover. The first edition had an additional note
including the new
JUBILEE LINE
on the front cover.
