Cheyne Walk is a historic street in Chelsea. Most of the houses were built in the early eighteenth century.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828 1882) was a poet, illustrator, painter and translator. He was one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848. He was banned from keeping peacocks at 16 Cheyne Walk due to the noise. Possibly by William Walter Burgess (1844 - 1908), who annually exhibited his etchings at the Royal Academy from 1874 to 1903. Burgess was a full member of the Royal Engravers and such major museums as The British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, include his etchings in their permanent collections.
