Entitled – Richmond.

Below the picture an inscription reads:

Richmond. – Beautifully situated on the right bank of the Thames, and lying between Kew Gardens and Richmond Park, this is perhaps the most popular suburban resort of the Londoner. On arriving at Richmond, one ascends the broad, main street of the town, and presently reaches, at the top of the hills, a fine park, terrace, and avenue, commanading a truly magnificent view, a photograph of which is here reproduced. The view from Richond Hill, extending over the Valley of the Thames, which winds among meadows, woodlands, and beautiful undulations, has been celebrated by poets and depicted by painters, who seem never to have wearied of its tranquil charms. Pope, Thomson, and Wordsworth – not to speak of lesser bards – have praised in immortal verse the winding river, the “meads for ever crowned with flowers,” the rich foliage and the extensive prospect over hill and dale; and Turner, Sharp, and many other landscape painters have endeavoured to transfer to canvas the beauties of this place. On the front of the hill sloping down to the Thames, the Dukes of Buccleuch had their pleasure gardens, attached to Buccleuch House on the edge of the river (famous for its river fetes and garden-parties). Not very long ago, however, the place was purchased by the local authorities, and now the public can wander at their will amid these lovely gardens, and enjoy the superb view which Richmond Terrace commands. This view includes the Highgate and Hampstead hills, Harrow-on-the-Hill, Stanmore, Pinner, part of Buckinghamshire, the Berkshire hills (between Maidenhead and Reading), St. Anne’s Hill, Cooper’s Hill, Windsor Castle and Forest, the heights near Farnham, and other prominent parts of Surrey.
