J. & W. Newton. Plan of Streatham Park. 1822. Watercolor on vellum. *2007M-5

After Hester Thrale Piozzi's death in 1821, this survey of her home, Streatham Park, was commissioned by her daughters Hester, Susanna, and Cecilia. It was then incorporated into the 1825 deed of sale of the property to Michael Shepley. The property passed through the hands of a series of owners, eventually falling into ruins, and was demolished in 1863.
