Highgate Archway, 1822


Highgate Archway, viewed from the South. Sheep and cattle are being driven down Archway Road. The scene shows a mixture of the countryside and the city. Note the streetlights and the factory chimney belching smoke.

Archway Road, 2003


This photograph is taken near to the place shown in the old print of 1822. The banks have been supported by concrete walls. Sheep and cattle have been replaced by cars. The city has swallowed up old Highgate, but it is still possible to recognise the place.
