I've always had a fascination with old London Bridge, as it played such a significant role in the development of London and purely because it has so much fascinating history, since it's had so many iterations over its time. This version of London Bridge, architecturally, is the one I wish we could see the most if they were to ever re-build a previous version for present-day.
Another one of my beloved places to visit in London is Greenwich, which is represented on this drawing with Greenwich Palace, and the observatory that is placed on a more fantastical version of the hill it still stands on to this day (now called Greenwich Park) I wanted to ensure London Bridge didn't overshadow it completely within the landscape.
The Tower of London makes a small appearance, almost as a precursor to my ‘Albert Mansions & Tower’ drawing.
