Hanover Terrace. A watercolour drawing of Hanover Terrace, Regent's Park by the topographical artist Thomas Hosmer Shepherd. Shepherd was commissioned to make drawings of John Nash's Regent Street and Regent's Park. His views ranged from elevations of commercial and retailing buildings in Regent's Street to the picturesque and grand structures in and around Regent's Park. This and others of his fine and detailed pencil and wash drawings were engraved by W Wallis to illustrate James Elmes' Metropolitan Improvements in 1827. They give an excellent impression of the varied scale and character of the new development.
