London : John Bowles, ca.1750]. A handsome antique print – a mid eighteenth-century vue d’optique or perspective view (without the customary lateral inversion) – offering a view of Cornhill, the Royal Exchange, etc., with St. Paul’s away to the west in the distance. A variant of the 1754 Bowles view in the Guildhall Library, with a different title and showing detail of the east end of the Exchange rather than the adjacent Cornhill buildings.
