Description

Wood engraving by Gustave Dore (1832-1883), showing men and women in the back yards of tenements in the East End of London, with a steam locomotive passing over a bridge in the background. Plate from ''London: A Pilgrimage'' (1872). Publishers Grant & Co paid Dore, France''s most successful illustrator, £10,000 a year for five years to produce work for ''London: A Pilgrimage''. The book contains 180 engravings by him, and was a great commercial success, though some accused him of focusing excessively on the poverty in London. Dimensions: 250mm x 195mm.
