J. Tallis    Tallis's Views of London c1834-40
42 x 12.5cm

London - The Strand. A fascinating strip-panorama of the western end of the Strand, showing all the shops and buildings on both sides of the road, with details of many of the occupants and businesses housed within. The sheet also includes a traditional plan to show the location of the Strand, and a vignette of Trafalgar Square. Tallis's work was published in parts from 1830-40, comprising an early street directory of central London. A revised slightly larger version was published in 1848. A rare item.
