Illustrated London News 1845 Panorama of London and the River Thames
The following description of the Panorama was published by Ralph Hyde when Keeper of Prints and Maps at the (London) Guildhall Library.
‘The Illustrated London News published its Panorama of the Thames in 1845, which exhibited as distinctly as in a map, yet with beautiful picturesque effect, the Royal towered Thame, its Forests of Masts, its crowded Docks and Port, its Fleet of Steamers, its Noble Bridges, its busy Wharves and Quays, and the various objects of interest and beauty upon its immediate banks'. The print, 'engraved in the First Style of the Art, from a most elaborate Drawing made especially for the Illustrated London News had occupied the artists for several months and total reliance could be placed upon its accuracy.’
