From the end of the 18th century until it closed in 1859, Vauxhall Gardens were London’s most famous pleasure gardens, offering food, noise, culture and debauchery to anyone who could afford the (modest) entry fee. In Vauxhall Gardens, David Coke and Alan Borg have chronicled with wit and learning the raucous history of a place central to the social and literary history of Georgian London.1985-0336, 29/7/02, 4:08 pm,  8C, 3962x6126 (1078+405), 88%, bent 6 stops,  1/10 s, R72.1, G54.6, B70.9Betterlight Model: 6100 Serial:1534Lights: Balcar Fluxlite Serial:70185Filter: Daylight IRLens: Schneider 5.6/180 Makro-Symmar HM (No14762512)Photographer: Iris FernandesProfile: Adobe RGB(1998)Gamma:2.2
