This detail is from a verandah above my ”Wisteria Vine" posting.

“ . . in one of the houses in the Upper Mall, Catherine, dowager of Charles II., resided for many years; and in another, the unfortunate Queen Caroline, wife of George IV, died. In another house, called the Dove Coffee-house, the poet Thompson wrote the greater part of his "Winter;" and in this parish resided Loutherbourg, the painter, and Elphinstone, the friend of Johnson. The streets are well paved and lighted with gas . .”
