    This is an early work dating from between 1808 and 1820 when Hunt's early patron Dr Thomas Monro took a cottage at Bushey, Hertfordshire where Hunt was a frequent visitor. He produced a number of similar drawings of cottages and farm buildings during this period. A view of St Albans Cathedral by Hunt is in the Victoria and Albert Museum and a view of a street in St Albans is in the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven (see John Witt, William Henry Hunt, 1982, nos. 168 and 247).
