VISUALISATION two hundred years ago: Humphrey Repton's image of Wentworth BEFORE landscaping

Humphrey Repton, landscape designer, 1752-1818 became famous for producing high quality watercolour images of before and after his landscaping proposals. These images show Wentworth, South Yorkshire as it was and how it could look if his plans were implemented. The before images had a paper flap that could be opened to reveal the proposed improvements to the landscape, such as the addition of a lake.
