Colosseum print - south view, 1844. Creator: Ebenezer Landells

Colosseum print - south view, 1844. Panorama of London, one of a series made from daguerreotypes by Antoine Claudet, sketched by Henry Anelay and engraved by Ebenezer Landells. The daguerreotype images were taken from the top of York Column: The picture was not one complete whole, as it now appears upon the paper, but was divided upon a very great number of small silver plates. These had to be copied, and arranged each in its exact position, any small deficiences being filled in from nature. This labour required a talented artist, and occupied at the top of the column during many days, the pencil of Mr. H. Anelay...the Colosseum Print required upwards of sixty distinct blocks, to be consolidated into one perfect surface, without line, speck or flaw. This was done by Mr. Wells...the drawing upon the wood, a task performed by Mr. Sargeant. From a supplement to the " Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I

This photo print, titled "Colosseum Print - South View, 1844" takes us back to the bustling streets of London in the 19th century. Created by Ebenezer Landells, this panoramic view showcases iconic landmarks such as St. Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. The image was meticulously crafted from daguerreotype images taken from the top of York Column. These images were divided into numerous small silver plates that had to be copied and arranged with precision. The talented artist Henry Anelay played a crucial role in filling any gaps and ensuring a flawless final result. To consolidate all these distinct blocks into one seamless surface without any imperfections required great skill, which was masterfully executed by Mr. Wells. The intricate drawing on wood was performed by Mr. Sargeant, adding depth and detail to every corner of this remarkable panorama. As we gaze upon this print today, we are transported back in time to witness the grandeur of London during the Victorian era. From its majestic cathedrals to its well-planned cityscape, this image captures both the religious significance and urban development that defined Britain's capital city. Ebenezer Landells' Colosseum Print stands as a testament to the artistry involved in creating such detailed prints during an era when photography was still in its infancy. It serves as a valuable historical document that allows us to appreciate London's rich heritage while marveling at the craftsmanship behind its creation.
