"The Banqueting House was built from the designs of Inigo Jones in 1619-1622. The ceiling...is decorated with pictures painted by Rubens at Antwerp. (Sainsbury's Rubens, 183-186; 191-205.) In its early days Masques were performed at the Banqueting House; it is now used as a chapel, though it has never been consecrated. It was restored in 1831."

King Charles I "...was beheaded on a scaffold before the front shown in the view."

Letterpress by Alfred Marks from 'Photographs of Old London'.
