Description

This panorama of London’s city center is viewed from the southern banks of the Thames looking north and is based on a monumental work by Wenceslas Hollar in 1647. It shows the British capital prior to the devastating fire that destroyed a significant portion in 1666.

Captions identify the Tower, London Bridge, White Hall, bear-baiting, and more. St. Paul’s is lacking its distinctive dome, pre-dating the design by Christopher Wren which replaced the structure gutted by the fire. Published in Leiden by Pieter Van der Aa in 1719.
