1407 Head of Windermere

 

Print: Le Blond - LB 39, CL 33 - Windermere is the largest natural lake in England and is one the main attractions to the Lake District National Park. It has been a tourist destination since 1847 when the Kendal and Windermere railway opened.

 

It is stated as a view of the "Queen of Lakes" taken apparently from the high road between Ambleside and the Vale of Troutbeck. In the distance are the stately Langdale Pikes.

 

The print was used in an (as yet) unknown pocket-book, and it has then engraved in the bottom margin, in the centre the above title, on the left "Printed in oil colours by Le Blond & Co." and on the right "Licencees, London."

 

Date: 1850’s
