Colonel (later General Sir Frederick) Trench originated the idea of the Thames Embankment, for which a bill was presented to Parliament but failed. Revived, work on the Embankment started in 1864, although to a different design than is shown here. Drawn by Thomas Mann Baynes, the panorama shows the riverside as it appeared in 1825, from Westminster Bridge to London Bridges, with the proposed embankment running from Whitehall to Blackfriars Bridge, with the skyline of London shown correctly above.
