Notes SOURCE: John Tallis. Tallis's London Street Views (London, 1838-1840), no. 44 [St Martin's-le-Grand] detail NOTES: John Tallis produced 88 London street views between 1838-1840. Each focused on a specific street and featured a topographical view, directory and accompanying descriptive text. Tallis updated and republished his Views frequently in an effort to create the most accurate and comprehensive guide to London available. The streetscapes document great change in this period, as seen here with a row of wooden fencing obscuring a construction site.
