A-Z maps were created by Phyllis Pearsall in 1936 to provide a street-atlas of London with EVERY street marked! The company was originally called Geographers Map Co, with A-Z added in 1972. After the war expansion led to other cities being covered, and today almost all of the towns and cities in the UK have an A-Z Street Atlas. For the full history, see the A-Z website.

Today the company also produces a range of large-scale road atlases for the UK.
