EDITORS COMMENTS This print takes us back in time to the grandeur of 19th-century London. Standing tall and proud, Wellington Arch and Apsley House dominate the scene with their remarkable architecture and historical significance. The arch, known as a triumphal arch, was built to commemorate the victories of Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington. It serves as a magnificent gateway to Hyde Park Corner in Westminster. The intricate details of its design are beautifully captured in this engraving by T H Shepherd, dating back to 1850. Adjacent to the arch is Apsley House, also known as Number One London. This stately mansion was once home to the Duke himself and now stands as a museum dedicated to his life and achievements. Its elegant facade reflects the opulence that characterized Victorian-era buildings. The black-and-white aesthetic adds an air of nostalgia and authenticity to this image from Historic England Photo Library's Mayson Beeton Collection. It allows us to appreciate not only the architectural splendor but also transports us into a different era altogether. As we gaze upon this print, we can almost imagine ourselves walking along Piccadilly during those times when horse-drawn carriages roamed these streets. It serves as a reminder of London's rich history and its ability to preserve iconic landmarks that continue to captivate visitors today.
