Steel engraving published by J. Holloway of 10 Milsom St, Bath. The view is of the city of Bath from Prior Park, in the south. Prior Park is a Grade I listed palladian building, designed by John Wood as the home to Ralph Allen. Ralph Allen moved to Bath in 1710, he was a postmaster, the Mayor of Bath, and later acquired the stone quarries in Combe Down and Bathampton. With this stone, Georgian Bath was built. The view shows in the foreground the gardens of Prior Park (now owned by the National Trust), and Bath in the valley below. Although the engraving is small, it is very clear and easy to pick out various Bath landmarks - Pulteney Bridge. the Abbey, the Royal Crescent, Lansdown Crescent, Camden Crescent, Widcombe Crescent and St Thomas a Becket church in Widcombe. Across the horizon Kelston Roundhill and Beckford's Tower can be seen.
