the lack of classified roads in the City, 1923

Originally, there were no classified roads within the City, due to its sui generis status, however roads were classified at some point. The number of classified roads maintained by the City of London was greatly reduced with the Ring of Steel renumbering, which removed most classified roads in the City, save a few right on the edge and some A roads tying up the loose ends.
