SAYER, Robert. [One of the first images of Westminster Bridge]
A North View Of Westminster Bridge; Vue Du Pont De Westminster Du Côté Du Nord. London: Robert Sayer & henry Overton, 1751, Old colour, 265 x 405mm. Trimmed into plate at sides.
A view depicting Westminster Bridge in the year that it opened, with text underneath in both English and French giving particulars about cost, dimensions etc. The bridge was the second to span the Thames after London Bridge and was a wonder of engineering and modernity at the time, and was painted by Canaletto in 1746. Of interest is the depiction of the medieval Palace of Westminster which burnt down in the fire of 1834.
