Product description

The Great Fire of London, believed to have started in a baker’s shop in Pudding Lane, raged from 2 September to 5 September 1666. It destroyed more than half the area inside the city walls of London. More than 13000 houses in 400 streets went up in flames, as well as 80 churches and most of the public buildings in the city. The overall cost of the damage to property and goods was estimated at £10 million – a staggering amount of money for those times. A large re-building programme soon followed, masterminded by men like Sir Christopher Wren, the architect of St Paul’s Cathedral. The Monument, close to the Tower of London, now marks the spot where the fire started.

Begin your exploration of the most famous event in London’s history with this wonderful illustrated poster.

    I was lied to.

    I thought it was a real poster but no its an online product. What is stopping me form just copying and pasting the image into an acceptable format. Really disappointed.
