This set of London Transport bus maps (four quadrants, plus Central London) was issued as 1983 Nº 1. Curiously, the same print code was used for North West and North East (183/04101/500M) and South West and South East (183/04102/500M). Each folder included a diagrammatic area map on one side and service list plus fare and ticket information and a full Underground diagram on the other. This was the first issue of a set of area maps, replacing the comprehensive single map produced in earlier years.
