Brief Description: Coloured aquatint entitled 'View of Reading from Red Lane' by W H Timms
Subject Date: 1823
Creator: W H Timms
 
Full Description: W.H.Timms produced a series of prints showing scenes in and around Reading which were first published in 1823. This one shows a view of the town from the hills to the south of the town. At this date Reading was a quiet market town surrounded by green fields and woods. Within twenty years, however, the railway line from London would be completed and Reading's transformation into an industrial town would begin. 'Red Lane' is now Redlands Road and is lined with handsome Victorian brick-built houses, most of them built in the 1880s.
