These rough maps were made for the Croatian translation of my novel Foxy-T.
This was part of a conversation with publisher AGM and translator Borivoj Radaković about whether readers in Croatia might find it useful to see where the novel’s Whitechapel and Shadwell locations could be found on a map of London, and in relation to the familiar line of the Thames. The maps were not intended for publication in this form, but to act as guides from which finished maps might be drawn.
The more detailed street map shows the relative positions of various locations from the novel. The numbered key reads:
- E-Z CALL
- SHADWELL DLR STATION
- SHABBAZ’S FATHER’S RAILWAY ARCH
- GOLDEN LION SOCIAL CLUB
- TAYYABS RESTAURANT AND TAKEAWAY
- WHITECHAPEL MOSQUE
- WHITECHAPEL UNDERGROUND STATION
- KEEN STUDENT CENTRE
- HSBC BANK
- DERELICT FLATS
In the event the maps were not needed.
