Lot 0295
hand-coloured wood-engraved peepshow, top with engraving showing Rotherhithe from Wapping laid down on pink board, 3 panels showing river, tunnel with pedestrians pasted on, 3 circular peeps, text stuck to front inner board recording the number of visitors to March 1846, original cloth-backed blue marbled boards, blue paper title label on upper cover, worn, upper cover almost detached, 201 x 170mm., [after March 1846]. "The peepshows of the 1840s and 1850s seem all to have been produced by local printers working in or near Rotherhithe by far the most successful and prolific manufacturer was Bondy Azualy. Describing himself as a "Perspective View Manufacturer" as well as printer and publisher, he occupied counters 27, 41 and 62 in the tunnel (of which "Counter 41 is exactly under the centre of the River Thames, and consequently the lowest part of the structure."). He seems to have set up his tunnel business round about the time it opened and to have sustained it until at least 1862." The Triumphant Bore: A Celebration of Marc Brunel's Thames Tunnel, p.30 (by Julia Elton).
