View of a mansion named Hygeia House in Cheltenham in Gloucester. This was built in c.1804 by London financier and property entrepreneur Henry Thompson. In 1801 he had bought 400 acres of land in Cheltenham, and he built Hygeia House for himself where the the spring water was dispensed, until the first Montpellier Spa building opened in 1809. As can be seen in the print, the building was rectangular with a large bow front and a veranda running along the length. It is currently called Vittoria House and is located down Vittoria Walk in Cheltenham.
