An outside treadmill, sheltered by a roof, driven by 10 prisoners. Brixton Prison was opened in 1820 and quickly earned a reputation as one of the worst prisons in London, with its small cells overcrowded. This corn mill was installed the following year. During the 1860s the social reformer Edward Smith (1819-1874), who participated in the first govennment-sponsored survey of food consumption in low-income families, complained that the prisoners were maltreated because they received no additional food while toiling on the exhausting 'punitive treadmill'.

Oblong folio; card wrappers with illustrated title label; 6 lithographed views. Some damp staining.
Six views of Clapham Common, printed by Hullmandel, extremely rare with the original title label on the wrapper. The views are: View from the Mount Pond, on Clapham Common, Looking N.E.; View of the N.E. End of Clapham Common; View from the S.E. Corner of Clapham Common; View of the S.E. End of Clapham Common; View from the Mount Pond, on Clapham Common, Looking S.E.; View from the Nine Elms, on Clapham Common, Looking S.W. Joseph Powell (1780-1834) started as a landscape artist and etcher who embraced all forms of printmaking, an honourary exhibitor at the Royal Academy until 1833 and first president of the New Society of Painters in Water Colours (founded 1831). The drawings were made between 1818-1823 when Joseph Powell was working there. These views show the architecture of Clapham around the common and bordering Wandsworth at the beginning of the 19th Century when livestock is being grazed on the common in front of Holy Trinity Church. It was at this time that William Wilberforce and other member of the "Clapham Sect" lived around the common and worshipped at Holy Trinity. Most of the houses that the Clapham Sect lived in are gone but their names live on in some of the newer roads in the area.
