A dramatic panoramic view of London in flames from south of the Thames, marked with a 20-point key.
It is interesting that the Globe Theatre is shown safe in Southwark, despite having been closed by the Puritans in 1642 and pulled down about three years later, two decades before the Great Fire of London.
