Printed at Friedel's Estab.t 252 Tottenham Court Road [n.d., c.1838.]
Tinted lithograph. Sheet 360 x 675mm (14¼ x 26½"). Small tears on left.
Thomas Hopper's design for the rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament after the devastating fire of 1834. His sprawling, neo-Gothic building incorporated a restored St Stephen's Chapel with a duplicate for the House of Lords, as well as a second Westminster Hall. When he lost the competition to Charles Barry, Hopper tried to get Parliament to overturn the result on the grounds that Barry had cheated. Across the river can be seen the Stangate Glass Works, owned by John Fell Christy, manufacturer of high-quality glassware, on the site now occupied by St Thomas' Hospital.
