Stonehenge and its Environs by Mr Hamhead Found this on e-bay whilst searching for information on India!, It comes from May 1922 and was published in the Illustrated London News describing Stonehenge as a prehistoric Westminster Abbey, Exchange and Epsom all rolled into one! I think the artist is W Robinson but it is hard to make out.
Note to 'backwater of the Avon and landing stage for traders' bottom right.

Nice find. Notice how The Avenue takes a fork - one to Amesbury, the one that we know, and the other branch, which hasn't been proved, that heads for the eastern end of The Great Cursus. Wishful thinkin? The Eternal Posted by The Eternal
