In his study of the London Street views by John Tallis, Jackson, referencing Gravesend Library, mentions the Gravesend Street Views as having been published in July 1839: 'It was a charming little production which, in addition to the text, contained three plates of exactly the same size and format as those of London, each with four elevations bounded by a view and a map.'' (p.17). This single sheet, of the High Street, is an extract from the complete work of 3 plates, A Comprehensive Gazetteer of Gravesend with its Environs; being a Complete Guide for Visitors on Pleasure or Business, to which is added a General Directory of Gravesend (published by Tallis in 1839; copy in Gravesend Library).
