London on fire, 1666
Text in German, French and English below image.
'Platte Grande der Verbrande Stadt London'.
This plan of London shows the areas destroyed in the great fire of 1666. The text is in German, French and English. The fire started on Sunday 2 September 1666 and within five days much of medieval London was destroyed. An area of one and a half miles by half a mile lay in ashes; 373 acres inside the city walls and 63 acres outside were gutted. Over 80 churches (including St. Paul's Cathedral) and 13,200 houses were destroyed. Despite the huge destruction, only 6 people are definitely known to have been killed. However, it seems likely that the actual death toll was much higher.
