Caption: Billingsgate Fish Market. 19th-century artwork of fish trading at the open-air Billingsgate Fish Market, Billingsgate Wharf, the River Thames, London, UK. Buildings to house the fish market were erected in 1850 and the 1870s. This artwork is from 'The Microcosm of London', a series of 104 hand-coloured aquatints depicting London buildings and scenes. They were published by Rudolph Ackermann between 1808 and 1810, and then collected in three folio volumes. The artworks combined architectural details by Charles Augustus Pugin, and human figures drawn by Thomas Rowlandson. This aquatint, published 1 March 1808, was engraved by John Bluck.
