Full image caption

Cheapside, 1823. Coloured lithograph. General, bird's eye view of a busy street at Cheapside. Richard Rush, the American ambassador, wondered at the City's busy streets. He wrote in 1817 of the pavements 'crowded with people' and the 'coal waggons and others as large, carts, trucks, vehicles of every sort, loaded in every way . . . in two close lines, like great tides, going reverse ways, and reaching farther than the eye can see.'
