    King George V Silver Jubilee – George Charlton

    A signed, oil on canvas view of the Royal procession along the Embankment during the Silver Jubilee of  King George V in 1935. The 1902 State Landau carrying the King and Queen Mary is shown passing between the steps of the City of London School and the River Thames. This stretch of the Thames, originally known as Blackfriars Reach, was renamed King’s Reach in honour of the Sovereign in his Jubilee Year. The form of Joseph Cubitt’s historic Blackfriars Railway Bridge of 1864 (demolished 1985) can just be made out between the road bridge of 1869 and the rail bridge of 1886 by John Wolfe Barry and Henry Marc Brunel. The scholars of the City of London School can be seen waving and craning to catch a glimpse of the Royal couple as the carriage processes from St Pauls Cathedral to Buckingham Palace.  The City of London School departed this site at Blackfriars in 1984 and the former school building now houses the British and European headquarters of the Financiers J.P. Morgan.

    The Works of New London Bridge by Edward William Cooke RA,

    A hand-coloured engraving by George Cooke of a drawing by his son Edward William Cooke RA, from 'The Works of New London Bridge'. In 1800 it was first proposed that the inconvenient medieval bulk of old London bridge should be removed to ease traffic on the Thames and a competition was held to design a replacement. In 1824, the plans of the engineer Sir John Rennie were accepted and a site was chosen 180 feet west of the old bridge.  On June 15, 1825, the Lord Mayor of London, John Garratt, laid the first block of Dartmoor granite in the presence of the Duke of York. For a short time Londoners were able to view both the old bridge and the new side-by-side. It was to be a structure of 5 arches, over 928 feet long and 49 feet wide. When the new bridge was finished and opened by King William and Queen Adelaide in 1831, traffic switched to the huge new structure and the demolition commenced on the old bridge. Edward William Cooke (1811 - 1880) was a draughtsman, illustrator, wood engraver, etcher and painter of rural and coastal scenes in oil and watercolour. In this print Cooke shows new London bridge in the middle stages of construction with the forms for the arches still in place. On the far bank of the Thames the viewer can see the Fishmongers Hall, the steeple of St Magnus the Matryr church and The Monument.

    Westminster from Vauxhall

    A hand-coloured engraving by George Cooke of a watercolour by Samuel Prout showing a view across the Thames from the Vauxhall shore towards Westminster Cathedral and the Palace of Westminster. Taken from Cooke's 'Views in London and its Vicinity'. In the immediate foreground we are presented with a scene outside a Lambeth boat-builders yard while barges and wherries crowd the river in the middle distance. On the Westminster shore we can see St John's Smith Square and beyond that the massy bulk of Westminster Abbey, later to sit in a somewhat diminished relation to Barry and Pugin's rebuilt Houses of Parliament of 1840-1876 Samuel Prout was a great favourite of John Ruskin who went as far as to comment in 1844, "Sometimes I tire of Turner, but never of Prout". Prout was noted for his paintings of great European cities and picturesque ruins and particularly for his ability to imbue his subjects with 'breadth and largeness'. George Cooke was leading English line-engraver of the 19th Century and commissioned eight of leading British landscape artists to create works, including this, for his 1826 collection of 'Views in London and its Vicinity'. This is a first edition of 1827. Interestingly the old Palace of Westminster, depicted here, would burn to the ground only seven years after this work was created.
