Architectural drawing showing a section through of the east end of Christ Church in Great Surrey Street (later known as Blackfriars Road) in Southwark. This church was established in 1671 on part of the Paris Garden Manor. However it was rebuilt in 1738-41, probably by James Horne. The materials used were brick, with stone quoins (dressed stones at the corners of buildings). It had a symmetrical east end with two entrances and a Venetian window in the centre. This section shows what the east end would have looked like from the interior of the church. The church was bombed in the Second World War and later rebuilt.
