This is a decorative, hand colored print, possibly dating to 1784, issued as a plate in "New and Complete British Traveller", titled at bottom "View of Hackney in Middlesex". Presently the print itself measures 6" by 6 3/4" (10 3/4" by 12 3/4" in simple black wood frame). I see from online research that this example seems to have been cut down, with all decorative border areas, and the name of the publisher, Alex Hogg, at the Kings Arms, No. 6 Paternoster Row, trimmed away. The print nevertheless remains decorative and worthy of framing with a new clean mat (presently there is none) that would hide the irregularly cut edges. Hackney is near London in southeast England. Note whitish reflections, principally at upper left in photos. There is a small abraded area in the image at right above the buildings.
