Catalogue Note

Notwithstanding the artist's inscription, the present work is in fact a view of the Royal Exchange and, to its left across Threadneedle Street, the Bank of England. In 1925-39 Sir John Soane's Bank of England, visible here, was replaced by Sir Herbert Baker's design, which still stands today.
