Lincoln's Inn - Old Square
Photographer: Dixon, Henry (1820 - 1892)
Medium: Photographic print
View of the buildings to the north of the Gate House, Lincoln's Inn. In 'Photographs of Old London' Alfred Marks draws our attention to "a tradition that Ben Jonson, fresh from his college at Cambridge, wrought as a bricklayer on the buildings of Lincoln's Inn, when having a trowel in one hand, and a book in his pocket."
The buttresses to the left are those of Inigo Jones's "bastard Gothic" chapel.
