Additional Information about the Print

An aerial view of the Thames from Westminster to the Tower, including the new London County Hall (built as headquarters of the LCC and opened in 1922) in the right foreground, courtesy of whom the plate was issued.

Walcot later worked for the LCC planning department who praised him in an obituary notice in 1943. One of his ideas had been to divert the Thames to a straight channel so that the land in the curving meanders could be built on as fashionable boulevards.
