The west façade of Buckingham Palace, seen from the Palace Gardens; swans on the lake and figures to foreground. This is Higham's view of the garden front of Nash's Palace occupied at the time by William IV. It shows the building as it was before Nash's successors carried out their alterations. From a plate engraved for the Stationers' Almanack. The Stationers' Company had published the Stationers' Almanack since 1747, a single-sheet which consisted of calendar text set out beneath an engraved headpiece that recorded significant events of the preceding year. By Thomas Higham (1796 - 1844).
