Lincoln's Inn Fields, Newcastle House, 1882. This photograph was commissioned by the Society for Photographing Relics of Old London to form part of a permanent visual record of historic buildings threatened with alteration or possible demolition in the 1870s and 80s. Lincoln's Inn Fields is the largest public square in London. It was laid out in part by Inigo Jones in the early 17th century and was opened to the public in 1895 after its acquisition by the London County Council. The building shown here was altered in 1906 and again in the 1930s.
