Lincoln's Inn Fields, West Side
Photographer: Dixon, Henry (1820 - 1892)
Medium: Photographic print
Lincoln's Inn Fields, the largest square in London, was laid out by Inigo Jones in the seventeenth century.
"...Jones probably designed all the houses originally built on the west side, with the exception of Newcastle House. They are now nearly all plastered over and painted, but what they were originally (with the exception of Lindsey House, which was built of stone) can be seen in a house at the extreme south-west corner of the Fields, behind other more modern houses. This house, in its original state, is of red brick, the bases, bands, and capitals of the pilasters and the architraves being of stone."
