Full image caption

Reproduction of etching, 'London Going Out of Town or the March of Bricks and Mortar'. Regiments of new streets march ruthlessly out of London into the surrounding country under the leadership of 'Mr. Goth'. This satirical image comments on the frenzy in the construction that was taking place in London around the 1820s. The image gives a detailed picture of the brickmaking and house-building processes. The pits formed by brick digging were filled with domestic rubbish where rows of houses were built.
