Description

Panorama of the Thames reproduces much of bookseller Samuel Leigh’s rare, hand-coloured, 60-foot panorama of both banks of the Thames between Westminster and Richmond, as well as his complete panorama of the City and Southbank as seen from the Old Adelphi buildings in the Strand. Together, they offer fascinating views of central London and the riverside villages in 1829, towards the end of the Georgian period. The journey takes us past all the waterside communities and villages of the day, each one introduced by a short history and with its stately homes, churches and other structures clearly identified. A gazetteer, also divided by village, provides additional information on the most interesting and important landmarks.
