“This is a series of views -of various places in 'and about London- connected more or less with the past history of the great city. Some of the slides, however, represent items more directly of historical interest, such as Latimer Preaching, the Great Fire, Last Heraldic Court, Maria Wood, Plan of Roman London, and Wren's Plan for the Rebuilding of London.”
