A View of Covent Garden / Vue de Couvent Jarden
Engraving rare with very large margins, 18th century watermark, 200 x 310mm (8 x 12¼"). Slight creasing.
Covent Garden piazza, in London's West End. Until the 1970s a market was held in the centre of the piazza, as shown here. Until the early 19th century the market was open-air, but in 1830 Charles Fowler was commissioned to design the market building which stands to this day. The view looks northwards, with St. Paul's church on the left.
