The West London Cemetery Chapel

Brompton Cemetery Chapel

Brompton Cemetery Chapel

A beautiful illustration from The Pictorial Times in 1847, of the chapel in the West London Cemetery. The cemetery's better known today as Brompton. The picture is accompanied by a wonderful article about the miasmic theory of disease and how the new, hygienic cemetery will prevent bad air infecting the living. I'm missing the first part of the article, so as soon as I've been to Colindale to get it, I'll post the whole thing.
