Impressions taken from this plate  (65)
Old Hungerford Bridge dates from about 1861. It was etched on a copper plate from Hughes & Kimber, with a similar maker's stamp to those on two other plates of the Thames dated 1861, Millbank [78] and The Little Pool [79].
It is related to several other Thames views etched in 1861, including Vauxhall Bridge [75], Westminster Bridge in Progress [77] and Battersea Dawn (Cadogan Pier) [95].
Four of these Thames subjects - Millbank, The Little Pool, Early Morning, Battersea and Old Hungerford Bridge - were published in A Series of Sixteen Etchings of Scenes on the Thames (the 'Thames Set'), by Ellis & Green in 1871.
