For the most part Ackermann's Repository depicted landmarks and places of notice from
the exterior; however on occasion an interior view was shown in its issues.
If you've ever wondered what the saloon for the private boxes at Covent Garden Theater looked like in 1810 or what Polito's 1812 Royal Menagerie was like; here's your chance to see how Ackermann's Repository depicted them to an inquiring Regency public.
