Cheyne Row looking south in 1900

This hand tinted coloured postcard of Cheyne Row dates from 1905. In 1895 a group of admirers purchased the house to preserve it as a monument to the great man. The house is marked by a relief bust of Carlyle, which can be seen on the first house on the left. Carlyle's statute by Edgar Boehm is visible in the far distance. It was unveiled in the Embankment Gardens in October 1882. The view today has changed very little, except for the vehicles.
