Pictures from The Thames Illustrated: A Picturesque Journey from Richmond to Oxford (Richmond to Hampton Court) by John Leyland (1897).

The British Library catalogue says John Leyland was “of Forest Hill” but I have no more information than that.

The edition I have could be either 1897 or 1901. I am only guessing that he died no later than 1937, and that hence the images are out of copyright, but it seems likely.
