This engraving takes us back to the bustling streets of 19th-century London, where time was not only a precious commodity but also a fashionable statement. The print showcases an advertisement for Bensons Watches, a renowned watchmaker of that era. The scene depicted in this illustration is reminiscent of the Victorian era's charm and elegance. In the foreground, we see well-dressed gentlemen and ladies strolling along Ludgate Hill, one of London's busiest thoroughfares. Towering buildings line both sides of the street, with their ornate facades adding grandeur to the setting. Prominently displayed on a building facade is Bensons Watches' advertisement, catching the attention of passersby with its intricate design and bold lettering. The ad proudly announces Bensons as purveyors of fine timepieces at two prestigious locations: Old Bond Street in West End House and Ludgate Hill in East Central. This engraving not only serves as an exquisite piece of art but also offers us a glimpse into advertising practices during that period. It reminds us how companies like J. W. Benson skillfully utilized visual media to promote their products to potential customers. As we admire this vintage print from our private collection today, it transports us back in time when watches were more than just functional devices; they were symbols of status and refinement.
