The Town Hall, Leeds

dated 1859

Pencil, watercolour and bodycolour | 30.7 x 44.5 cm (whole object) | RCIN 920246

Victorian civic pride was expressed in a wave of new public buildings across the country. Victoria opened the new town hall in Leeds in September 1858. She commissioned this souvenir view of the building from the son of one of her and Albert’s favourite artists – possibly as a gesture of support for the family, as ill health meant the elder Joseph Nash was unable to work.
