Anne Letch lists a January 1933 map with o/p "L.P.T.B. 55 Broadway, SW1". The LPTB did not exist until July 1933, so the o/p is later than the map. Letch quotes the reference code as "750M - 1-33", but some collectors doubt this and believe there was a single edition in January 1933, with code "(750M - 1-33)". I have a variant of this map that was printed on thin paper, rather than card, and which has the o/p "L.P.T.B. 55 Broadway, SW1", but its printed content is identical to that of the card map. In particular, the code is the same, "(750M - 1-33)".
