A view of Ranelagh Gardens. A view of 'the Chinese House, the Rotunda & the Company in Masquerade in Ranelagh Gardens'. Crowds of extravagantly dressed people walk on either side of a rectangular pond, in the middle of which is the Chinese House. Behind is a large rotunda. The site of the gardens is now part of the grounds of Chelsea Hospital.
