EDITORS COMMENTS
This watercolour print by Thomas Hosmer Shepherd transports us back in time to the bustling streets of Gracechurch Street in London. The focal point of the image is "The Spread Eagle" a renowned coaching inn that stood proudly for centuries before its eventual demolition in 1865. Shepherd's attention to detail brings this historic building to life, showcasing its impressive architecture and intricate facade. The inn, which dates back to at least 1637, served as a vital hub for travelers and locals alike. Its grandeur and charm are evident even from this artistic representation. As we gaze upon this scene, we can almost imagine the comings and goings of horse-drawn coaches outside the inn's entrance. It was undoubtedly a place where stories were shared, friendships were forged, and journeys began or ended. This watercolour print not only captures an architectural marvel but also provides us with a glimpse into the vibrant street scene of old London. It serves as a reminder of how our cities have evolved over time while still preserving fragments of their rich history. Displayed within private collections today, this artwork allows us to appreciate both Shepherd's talent as an artist and his dedication to documenting significant landmarks like "The Spread Eagle". Let it transport you back in time and inspire curiosity about the hidden stories that lie within our urban landscapes.
