View of Birmingham from Aston Wharf with the Names of various Businesses
Birmingham is presented across a series of fields populated by sheep and cows. The most prominent buildings are St Philip’s Church in the centre and the cone of a glass house to the right.
The listed manufacturers, mostly small concerns, include clock-dial makers, japanners, jewellers, gold watch-hand and gilt and steel toy makers and needle makers. Other businesses include an optician and hop merchant. One female manufacturer, Abigail Robinson, Gold Watch Hand, Pendant and Toy Manufacturer of 21 Price Street is prominently named immediately beneath the view of Birmingham.« Previous in this sectionNext in this section »
