Sheep grazing on Lord's Cricket Ground, frost fairs on the Thames and rural scenes in Highgate and Notting Hill seem strange sights today, but a 17th-century view of Covent Garden is familiar enough to be recognized by any modern Londoner. This collection of images of old London includes more than 200 coloured engravings of the city and its suburbs ranging from 16th-century street plans to 19th-century engravings of the squares, markets, turnpikes and docks.
