Regency England Landmarks - from Ackermann's Repository

One of the constants to be expected in the pages of Ackermann's Repository was the hand colored plates of well known places in and around London; including buildings, parks and streets.  Ackermann's Repository had a subscription base that reached into the remote areas of the British Empire and foreign shores so they wanted to keep their readers appraised as to the look and goings on in that capital city.

I find these images to be an amazing snapshot of the true look of what 
Regency England was like and hope you enjoy seeing them too.

The London Museum at Piccadilly aka Bullock's Museum

Each of these hand-colored print would be accompanied by an article about the building shown; 
therefore educating the public a bit about the numerous landmarks in and around London.
This was the accompanying article in Ackermann's Repository
