Greenwich and London from One Tree Hill, about 1680
A painting proclaiming the prosperity and stability achieved through the restoration of the Stuart monarchy under Charles II, 1660-1685. The view dates to about 1680 and is taken from One Tree Hill, north-east of Observatory or Castle Hill in Greenwich Park. On the left is the Royal Observatory, built in 1675-1676, and there are deer in the foreground on the right - a feature of the Park since the reign of Henry VIII. The giant steps built up the face of Observatory Hill in Charles II's 1660s remodelling of the Park are also clearly visible. In the centre is the Queen's House, showing the East Bridge Room added in 1662, with its original central balcony over the walled roadway from Woolwich to London.
