London: R. Ackermann's Repository, 1809. Plate number 50 from Ackermann's "Microcosm of London". A lovely aquatint. The architectural details were drawn by Pugin, and Rowlandson drew the figures. (both are credited on the sheet). The aquatinting was done by J.C. Sadler. Glazed and framed in a black and gilt frame. Ackermann produced this work between 1807 and 1810. One of the greatest of the colour plate books. "The plates by Rowlandson and Pugin present an unrivalled picture of London in early 19th century, of historic value, as many of the buildings no longer exist" (Tooley).
