“Observe, my dear child, how dexterously has the artist delineated his subject,” says a gentleman in MacDonald “Max” Gill’s 1914 map of London. In this wry work’s self-described “artful devilry,” a motor bus chases a man down Peckham Road (he is not amused); polo players hurl ham hocks instead of swinging mallets; and a cart horse declares “Modestine’s my name, carrots my solace.” Meant to attract riders to the Underground, this diverting illustration is filled with quips and quirks.
