About the artist
Gideon Yates, also at times described as Major George Yates, was a topographical artist who travelled extensively in the UK and on the Continent. He is particularly known for his views of bridges and buildings in London, mainly in the areas of Bermondsey and Southwark. Yates contributed two illustrations of London Bridge, drawn in 1823 and 1827, to lithographer R. Martin’s ‘Views of London Bridges’, a series of twelve plates published in three parts in c.1830.
