Panorama of London

Share

  • Intro

    In this panorama William Smith has combined a profile view of London with a perspective view of Whitehall and Westminster. Smith shows St Paul's without its spire and south of the river, to the left of what is now Southwark Cathedral, he emphasises the large palace of the bishops of Winchester, of which only the west wall now survives. Further west, there are bull and bear-baiting pits.

     

    Shelfmark: Sloane MS 2596
