Please hover to zoom in
A view of Southwark as it was in 1546. Southwark grew up because the Southwark in 1546 was London's playground, free from the control of the City just across the bridge. This was where the theatres were built later in the 16th century and where the great and good of London went to enjoy more dubious activities, such as bear baiting.
In 1545 England invades Scotland. In 1546 Martin Luther dies in Germany. In 1546 Henry the VIII of England dies.

We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.
We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.
Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
