Old Scenes of Chelsea as You’ve Never Seen Before

More photographs of old Chelsea that you can still see many of the places in Hedderly’s pictures, Rossetti’s house, Belle Vue House, the embankment, a reasonable facsimile of the Old Church. But the remarkable thing about these pictures is that almost everything you see in them is now gone.
