Caption: Hollar's panorama of London. 17th-century artwork forming part of a panorama of the city of London drawn by Bohemian artist Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677). Known as 'The Long View of London from Bankside', the north-facing panorama stretches from Whitehall in the west to St Katherine's by the Tower of London in the east. This portion (sheet V of the panorama) shows the houses on Old London Bridge, then the only bridge in London. A winged figure overhead blows a trumpet. This copy of the labelled 1647 original was published as six pages in 1907 by the London Topographical Society. For all seven sheets, see C016/9904 to C016/9909.
