Ascent of Mr Green's Balloon, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Ascent of Mr Green's Balloon, 1845. On Monday evening, Mr. [Charles] Green made a very beautiful ascent in his monster Nassau Balloon, from the grounds of Cremorne House, Chelsea [in London], which were crowded with company to witness the spectacle. There was on the occasion of this ascent some novelty to attract the spectators and to amuse them. In addition to Mr. Green...there was amongst the "intrepid aeronauts" the celebrated Mr. Thomas Matthews, the Clown of Drury Lane Theatre, who immediately before the ascent favoured his companions in the car, and the thousands of persons who surrounded it, with the favourite ballad of "Hot Codlins". Mr. Matthews was equipped in full theatrical costume; the rest of the party in clothes more appropriate for an aerial trip'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

The Manor House at Chelsea, built by Henry VIII, c1810 (1911). King Henry VIII (1491-1547) moved to Chelsea in 1510. He began building his New Manor House, also known as Chelsea Palace in the 1540s, intending the building as a wedding present for Catherine Parr (1512-1548). King Henry VIII?s Manor House stood here until 1755 when it was demolished after the death of its last occupant, Sir Hans Sloane. Sir Hans Sloane (1660-1753) was an Irish-born British physician, naturalist and collector, notable for bequeathing his collection to the nation, providing the foundation of the British Museum. Numbers 19 to 26 Cheyne Walk were built on its site in 1759-1765. From London - North of the Thames, by Sir Walter Besant. [Adam & Charles Black, London, 1911]
