Coloured Lithograph, “Great Malvern, From the Abbey Road” - Framed

This coloured lithograph dates from the mid 1800s, and is titled “Great Malvern, From the Abbey Road”.

Throughout its history, properties in Abbey Road have been home to many well known residents and visitors and to this day, Abbey Road continues being a particularly attractive and historic area of the town of Malvern in Worcestershire.

Britain’s first purpose-built water cure establishment was in Abbey Road, Malvern, from where Dr James Wilson practised at two premises between 1845 and 1867 (number 33 and Malvern House).

This picture of “Great Malvern, From the Abbey Road” was lithographed by “Newman & Co, 48 Watling Street, London". John Newman and Co, engravers and print publishers, were based at 48 Watling Street, London, between 1848 and 1874. Between 1876 and 1880 they were at 69 or 49 Southwalk Bridge Road, London.

Publication of the lithograph was by, "H Lamb & Son, Royal Library, Malvern". Henry Lamb, was a bookseller and lending-library proprietor, based at the Royal Library in Malvern.

The Library House was built in Malvern c1818, as a library and social centre which included a reading room, music room, bazaar and billiard room. Decades before the Water Cure boom of the 1840s, and Malvern becoming well known as a Spa town, the Library House had already been built for the benefit of visitors to the town. The building became known as the Royal Library and was renamed after a visit by Princess Victoria in 1830. The existence of this one building was so significant that it could well have determined whether it was Great Malvern rather than Malvern Wells that blossomed into a town at the time when people were beginning to travel to Malvern to "take the waters".
