Old Bridge Street Chester - Thomas Allom - Framed Print - 11"H x 14"W

Thomas Allom was an English architect, artist, and topographical illustrator. He was a founding member of what became the Royal Institute of British Architects. He designed many buildings in London, including the Church of St Peter's and parts of the elegant Ladbroke Estate. He also worked with Sir Charles Barry on numerous projects, most notably the Houses of Parliament.

However, Allom is chiefly known for his numerous topographical works, which were used to illustrate books on travel. From the 1820s onwards, he travelled extensively through the UK and mainland Europe, and produced hundreds of drawings during journeys through Anatolia, Syria and Palestine. The results of this expedition were published in Constantinople and the Scenery of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor.

Emily Reeve's Character and Costume in Turkey and Italy, was also illustrated with engravings by Allom. He is also remembered for numerous illustrations of China, published in China Illustrated. He also provided illustrations for "Family Secrets" and E W Brayley's "A topographical history of Surrey".
