View by John Cessell Buckler of an old house in Grantham, Lincolnshire. Grantham was an important market town in the 15th century and was especially well known for the woollen trade. It developed rapidly in the 18th century as a resting place for traffic between London and the North of England. The artist, Buckler (1793-1894), was the eldest son of antiquarian draughtsman John Buckler. Buckler junior succeeded to his father’s architectural practice in 1826 and as well as his work he became an accomplished topographical artist. His style was so similar to his father’s that they are only distinguishable by their different signatures.
