John Smedley
An engraving by C. Bailey.


The image shows South Parade and some of the riverside buildings. In the centre is Holy Trinity Church with probably the Bath Terrace Hotel in the background. To the left are the limestone crags of Cat Tor. The Old Bath Hotel and other buildings on Temple Walk are also shown here. Note the shepherd and his flock of sheep (bottom left corner).
