Fichot’s print is broadly based upon Appert’s c1850 birds’-eye view (items 32-35). The main difference is the addition of Victoria Street, built in 1851, partly on the site of a slum dubbed “Devil’s Acre” by Charles Dickens.
Charles Fichot (1817-1903) was a French lithographer, who settled in Paris in 1852, giving an approximate date for the print.
