Labourers dismantle Temple Bar, London

Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of labourers dismantling Temple Bar, London, in 1878. They take the stones apart with pickaxes and hammers and carry them away in baskets and a barrow. In the background is a crane. Temple Bar is an archway designed by Christopher Wren; it used to stand at the junction of Fleet Street and the Strand. In the 1880s it was rebuilt at Theobalds Park, Hertfordshire, and in 2004 it was moved again and re-erected near St Paul’s Cathedral.
