NOTES: The church seen here is the parish church of St Leonard's, designed by James Burton (1834). It was replaced in 1961 by a church designed by Giles and Adrian Gilbert Scott following the destruction of the original building in 1944. The print was probably made around 1835 or 1836 following Princess Victoria's stay with her mother in 1834-1835. The house they stayed in, 57 Marina (the smaller building with four pairs of columns at first floor level), was renamed Victoria House after they left and is now known as Crown House. For a coloured version of this print see RIBA31490.
