Scope and Contents

141 x 84 mm. Showing the Grand Hotel de l'Europe emblazoned along its length with the legend God Bless the Prince of Wales. Situated on the Esplanade near the Victoria Memorial Hall (part of which is visible at the left of the print), the hotel was established in 1857 and occupied the same site until the building was demolished in 1936. (Makepeace, ii, 197 and Tyers, p. 89). But see Turnbull (1975, p. 47) who dates the naming of the hotel somewhat later.
