Викторианская готика. Ну или типа того

Гюстав Доре в представлениях не нуждается. Это серия его работ (точнее часть серии, всего было 180 гравюр) - отчёт о поездке в Лондон вместе с журналистом Бланшаром Жерро (Не уверен, что я правильно передал французское имя Blanchard Jerrold, ну да ладно). Вышла в виде альбома в 1870-м. Лондонцам, говорят не понравилось. Много, мол, внимания уделено изнанке города, да ещё и неточности имеются. Но нам с вами, думаю, это пофиг. Гравюры по-моему отличные. Подписи я переводить не стал, поскольку мой английский хромает. Он хороший, но почему-то хромает. Источник вот тут.
