It was from the tower of All Hallows that Pepys surveyed the ruins of London after the Great Fire – “the saddest sight of desolation”. John Quincy Adams was married there in 1797.

WATKINS, Frank, 1834-1897 : THE TOWER SUBWAY.
[London : Cassell & Co., 1878 (or later)]. An antique print – the first London "tube" in that it was the world’s first underground transport system built in a tube rather than a brick-built tunnel. Running from Tower Hill to Tooley Street, the underground carriages ran for only three months in 1870 before the tunnel was converted for pedestrian use. Engraved by Benjamin Fleming (fl.1874-1878) from an original sketch by the London artist Frank Watkins. Originally produced for the part-work “Old and New London” (London : 1873-1878).
