antique original hand-coloured aquatint of the Common Council Chamber, Guildhall, London, the meeting place of the City of London Corporation. Ackermann’s Repository of Arts was an illustrated British periodical published from 1809-1829. Although commonly called Ackermann’s Repository, or simply Ackerman’s, the formal title of the journal was the “Repository of arts, literature, commerce, manufactures, fashions, and politics.” This image was part of a monthly publication issued by Ackermann and often ‘bound’ afterwards into the form of a book. Ackermann’s images reflected the social mores of Regency Georgian London illustrating the lives of both rich and poor. This particular antique print is dated in the plate, 1808.
