A mysterious photograph of an unknown painting. Similar in style to some of the Bath views of Thomas Robins the Elder, but of a later period due to the additional buildings depicted. Unfortunately faded, I wonder if the originals have survived? Album annotated by Peter Lens 1747 and these photographs were taken from drawings in the possession of Mr. Elswick, Daniel Street 1747. The date is much more likely to be c.1780.
