View of the most famous prehistorical monument in England, dedicated to the owners of the estate on which it stands. Among the sightseers are soldiers in uniform. The Antrobus Family bought the estate in 1824, but after the heir to the baronetcy died in WW1 the estate was sold for £6000 in 1915. The new owner, Cecil Chubb, handed it over to the first Commissioner of Works in 1918, passing Stonehenge to the nation.
