Print: Le Blond - LB 96, CL 45. This print shows a view of Ramsgate the coastal town in Kent, England. A companion to LB 95 – Brighton. Both are different to most other Le Blond views, slightly larger and (in my opinion) of even higher quality possible due to the fact they were intended as pictures in their own right, rather than illustrations to pocket books but also produced some 12 + years after first using Baxter’s Patent Process.
This print is signed on the bottom right in the water "Le Blond & Co., London."
