|Artist/Photographer||Webb, John (1611-1672)|
|Library Reference||SC199/JoI&WeJ verso|
|Subject||Arches ; Walls ; Palaces ; Arcades|
NOTES: Possibly associated with the palace design of 1638, monumental in elevation, of nine bays with three alternative treatments: arcaded, with a blocked order and square openings and with square windows set in channelled, rusticated walls. This large palace with extensive mezzanine accomodation was intended for a monumental rebuilding of the Strand front of old Somerset House, tied in to the 16th century courtyards behind it.
