Thanks Dreamtime Wave Neil, yes St John's Street. I keep forgetting the 'modern' name because I think of it as Dead Lane but most people don't know that name at all. Yes thanks, I've got a copy of the Bunney but it's good to see it again. The Troughton shows the Turk's Head too but he ran out of paper on the right hand side and squished the other three buildings into the picture at a small scale in front of the pub. Artistically it was very dodgy but for information purposes it's a gem.

Don't think I've seen that one - if you get a chance?

The Turk's Head is the taller building on the right. You can even see the sign.

He wasn't one for dating his images. I'm guessing it was from a range of about 1820-1868 unless he started in childhood. The cross had gone before that point but there would have been people alive who remembered it in the early part of the period. He combined what he could still see with other artists' work to logically fill in his drawings. Much as I'm doing. The buildings agree with what other images show so apart from the cross and the dodgy size of the right hand size, it's probably a good representation of the early 1800s.
