Print: Baxter - CL 279 – Published in Scripture Pocket Book, 1850 as well as being issued separately by Baxter. The Castle is seen in the background, and Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, three Royal children and a dog are shown walking in the Park.
Prince Albert purchased the reversion to the lease in 1848 and the freehold in 1853, the Royal Family occupied it in 1855. So in 1850 when this print was published it was very current and topical news. It was here, in 1855 that the Queen heard of the fall of Sebastopol, and also that Prince Frederick William of Prussia won the heart of the then Princess Royal, a subject matter portrayed by Le Blond, a print of which will be available on this site. Queen Victoria's Journal of September 29th, 1855, records the betrothal. From this union sprang Kaiser William II and hence World War I.
When in the pocket book engraved in the plate margin is the title, and "Baxter's Patent Oil Printing, 11, Northampton Square".
