Original antique topographical print


Wood-engraving, a Supplement to the Illustrated London News, 1861. Folds as issued. A very detailed 'balloon-view' of London taken from a vantage point above Elephant & Castle. It shows the banks of the Thames from the Houses of Parliament to St Katherine's Dock, with the buildings lined along the banks. The year after publication the Thames Embankment bill passed through Parliament, allowing for the building of the Victoria & Albert Embankments. Sulman was an English architectural draughtsman who became a specialist in using balloons to produce birds-eye views of cities. One professionally repaired tear.
