The Cadogan Pier Cheyne Walk Chelsea.
The Cadogan Pier Cheyne Walk Chelsea.
N. Handford Esq. Archt. C. Warren, delt.
Published April 17th 1841, by T. Faulkner, Chelsea.
Very scarce lithograph, two perspectives (viewed from the bank and the river) printed on a single sheet. Tipped into album page, sheet 330 x 485mm (13 x 19").
There was insufficient accommodation on the riverbank for passenger steamboats in the 1840s and piers were built into the Thames to accommodate them. Cremorne Gardens had its own landing place, with a regular service from London. In 1840 Old Swan pier and Chelsea Mall pier served the steamboats, but by 1841 Earl Cadogan had erected Cadogan pier in Cheyne Walk, designed by N. Handford, catering for a large number of summer passengers. The pier was rebuilt c. 1875 to accommodate Albert Bridge. Perhaps from the architect's prospectus.

Fine coloured aquatint, sheet 230 x 260mm (9 x 10¼"). Trimmed within plate and glued to backing sheet at top. In mount.
Attractive view from the bank of the Thames at Chelsea, London, oval in aquatint masonry frame; with a distant view of All Saints Church, and Battersea Bridge. A carriage travelling down road in foreground, a barge is moored to the right. William Beilby (1740-1819) was a British glassworker known to have produced eminent enamelled glass during the later half of the 18th century. He was brought up in Durham and then later sent as an apprentice to Birmingham until his father's business failed forcing the family to move in 1757 to Newcastle-upon-Tyne to start again. The family then moved again in 1778 to London, then to Scotland. During this period, the family produced no more glass, but Beilby painted more of his exquisite water colours. The engraver, Francis Jukes (1745-1812) was a very early specialist in aquatint, which he learnt from Paul Sandby (1731-1809).

Park Chapel Chelsea Built 1718.
Drawn on Stone by Frances Faulkner 1841.
Lithograph. Sheet 485 x 330mm. 19 x 13". Very scarce.
This was built in 1718 as a proprietary chapel in the grounds of what was then Chelsea Park and was under the ownership of Richard Manningham, the son of the Bishop of Chichester. In 1810 Park Chapel was enlarged to serve the growing urban population, resulting in a building seating 1,200 people. God was much at work here, and the congregation grew to a very healthy size. However a crisis point came in 1855 when the Chapelís owner, the wealthy banker Sir John Paul Dean, was found guilty of fraud. Sir John was imprisoned and his assets sold off to pay his debtors, including Park Chapel. However, it was bought at auction by the congregation and put into a trust.

The Chelsea Waterworks Company was formed in 1723 and supplied water to Westminster and adjacent parts. It introduced the first iron main in London in 1746. The company held water in reservoirs in Hyde Park and Green Park and pumped water through an elaborate sysstems of canals which covered a large area of today's Pimlico. As the years marched by the water was becoming more and more contaminated and the Company installed the first Sand filtration operation to purify the water. Eventurally in the late nineteenth century the company became part of the Metropolitan Water Board.

Chelsea Hospital.
Published Nov.r 15. 1800 by T. Malton.
Aquatint with etching, image 215 x 305mm. 8½ x 12". One small tear close to title repaired.
The Royal Hospital Chelsea, with figures in the grounds. Chelsea Hospital is a retirement and nursing home for British soldiers who are unfit for further duty due to injury or old age, referred to as 'in-pensioners' (or more colloquially, as Chelsea pensioners). The Hospital was founded by King Charles II, who issued a Royal Warrant authorising the building of the Hospital on 22 December 1681, in order to make provision for old or injured soldiers. Many of these soldiers, who were no longer fit for service, had been kept on regimental rolls so that they could continue to receive payment, because there was an inadequate provision of pensions for them. Sir Christopher Wren was commissioned to design and erect the building. His design was based on the Hôpital des Invalides in Paris. The grounds of the Royal Hospital have been the site of the annual Chelsea Flower Show since 1913. From 'A Picturesque Tour Through the Cities of London and Westminster, illustrated With the most interesting Views, accurately delineated And executed in Aquatinta by Thomas Malton', 1792 - 1801. Malton (1748 - 1804) was an architectural watercolourist and teacher of Thomas Girtin and Joseph Mallord William Turner; also an aquatinter, notably after his own designs of London views.
