The photographs in this topographical work were taken by the renowned photographer P.H. Delamotte and the eminent photographer/publisher Joseph Cundall. The book is a particularly fine example of the narrative use of photographs in juxtaposition to text. The cost of producing such fine quality photographs for book application was reflected in the price - in this case, the substantial sum of £4 4s.
