Object history note

Bonner's Hall (also called Bonner's Palace) was an occasional residence of the bishops of London, including Bishop Edmund Bonner. It was pulled down in 1845 to make way for Victoria Park.

This object was part of the John Edmund Gardner collection of topographical prints and drawings of London. After Gardner's death the collection passed to his son Edmund Thomas, but was sold to Edward Coates MP in 1910. The collection was sold again in 1923 after Coates' death, and was split between various institutions and private collectors. The portion connected with Hoxton, Homerton, Hackney and Bethnal Green was bought by the Hon. Arthur Villiers and donated to the Bethnal Green Museum.
