Near Wood Street Walthamstow, Essex
Engraver: Laurie, R.
View of a cottage near Wood Street in Walthamstow, Essex. As the village grew away from its focal point of the parish church, buildings sprang up along certain roads and Wood Street was one of the established main roads. By the late 18th century much of the local forest had been cleared, but the land around Walthamstow was still marshy.
