St. Paul's Cathedral

St. Paul's Cathedral by Mortimer Menpes, R.I.. Watercolor. Source: The Thames, 214. “ The river Fleet, up which large ships could ply once, flowed into the Thames where is now Blackfriars Bridge. By its banks the great religious houses of the Black and White Friars rose, and the boundary cliff hewed by its current may still be traced in the steep rise up Ludgate Hill, which tries the patient omnibus horses day by day. Over all, as we draw further up the river, towers the great dome of St. Paul's ” (213-14).
