Notes A view of Irlam Hall, near Manchester, from Fisher & Co's Lancashire Illustrated, from Original Drawings by S. Austin, J. Harwood, and G. & C. Pyne &c. with descriptions by Thomas Allen (1832). The Hall was the ancestral home of the Irlam family, before passing to Thomas Latham in the 17th century. In 1805, the former half-timbered Elizabethan Hall was rebuilt by John Greaves in the Gothic revival style, but was demolished during the twentieth century. The lawn before the house is host to a flock of grazing sheep that sit beside the bank of the River Irwell, a large tent or marquee under a copse of trees, and a strolling couple, who look towards the masts of a ship in the distance.

William Alexander Le Petit (fl. 1829-1855) was a British landscape artist and topographical engraver.
