A fine watercolour drawing of Holborn, pre-viaduct days, after a famous view by London artist Thomas Hosmer Shepherd (1793-1864). Looking west from Snow Hill towards what is now Holborn Circus, with busy shops at the corner of the Farringdon Road, and the tower of St. Andrew Holborn dominating the skyline. Shepherd’s painting was engraved by William Woolnoth (1780-1837) in 1830.
