A delightful birds eye view, with individual buildings depicted and labelled, showing a London that has changed greatly since those days.The view is looking down from Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square to Whitehall and Westminster and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, etc. T Sulman made something of a speciality of these birds eye views, producing various, including panoramas of London and Edinburgh in the 1860s for the Illustrated London News. These smaller detailed plans (I am selling more on ebay - please see my other items) were drawn up for a London Guide that was issued during the 1880s and early 1890s.
