Swiss Cottage, Chalybeate


Lithograph published by W H Mason and R Ackermann, c1835. This cottage stood at the entrance to the chalybeate grounds (now St. Ann’s Well Gardens) where visitors taking the waters would leave their staff and horses. With the building of the Furze Hill flats, and the resulting increase in traffic, the cottage became something of an obstruction, so it was demolished in 1963. In this view, behind the cottage can be seen the edge of Wick House, a neo-classical home designed by Decimus Burton for Isaac Lyon Goldsmid. This house was demolished in 1935.
