The church stands at Foster Lane on the original site of the 12th Century church that was destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666. Rebuilt by Wren and other architect builders it was then burned out in the Blitz during the second World War, and rebuilt again.
In this print, Brooke shows the church in the context of new building development which is a staple of the London scene, where the new constructions will soon dwarf what was once the peak on the London skyline.
