T. Bonner delin
Printed & Sold by Henry Roberts Engraver opposite Great Turn Stile near Hand Alley Holborn.
Rare engraving, sheet 245 x 335mm (9½ x 13¼"). Trimmed to image on 3 sides.
Rare early view of Southend, historically the last settlement in Lewisham on the road to Bromley (both now suburbs in south-east London but then separate towns in Kent). The river Ravensbourne ran through the village, powering two mills. This view shows the Lower Mill with the mill pond, which survives as Peter Pan's Pool. Named after a pleasure park from the 1920s, a park of the same name was recently opened nearby. It was famous in the 18th century for the cutlery which John and Ephraim How made there. Until the early 20th century both mills were still functioning as corn mills. Land shown here belonged to Robert Cole (c.1701-68), who is buried in St Mary's Church, Lewisham.
