Exeter from above Exwick

The view shows the city late in Victoria's reign, after the completion of the railways and the growth of new buildings at St David's. The skyline shows the new spires of St Michael's and St Leonard's, completed in 1883. The changing scene be contrasted with the rural appearance of the same view a century earlier.
