This charming panorama showing the city center of London was issued as part of the title page for the May, 1761 issue of the London Magazine. The simple woodcut view shows St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Monument dominating the skyline with the crowded London Bridge in the foreground.

Numerous types of vessels, from fishing boats to rated ships of the line, are shown plying the Thames. Immediately below the view is listed the contents of the magazine issue, which includes ‘Propositions for the Neutrality of Hanover’, poetical essays, stock prices, and much more.
