This reproduction was first published in 1846 and shows a bird's eye view of the city from the South Bank stretching from Whitehall on the left to St Katherine's Church by the Tower on the right, with displayed heads on gatehouse spikes. The panorama is on four sheets, pasted together and bound in a volume.
