topography part 2: thomas shotter boys

These are some works of the English painter Thomas Shotter boys. He's a great draughtsman, evidently not only in his architectural details but also in his figures. These are from a collection called 'Picturesque Architecture in Paris, Ghent, Antwerp and Rouen'. The plates are from top to bottom;

The Remains of the Old Church of the Madeleine, Rue de la Licorne, Paris
The Belphry in ghent (my hometown :))
The Cathedral in laon
Rue-Notre-Dame, Paris
Porte Rouge, Notre Dame; Doorway of Hotel, Rue des Marmousets, Paris

It could be nice to compare these with their contempory states. Maybe next time.
