Another image to share. This one still and far older than the video I posted yesterday.

Here for your enjoyment is A drawing of London by the chronicler Matthew Paris from his Historia Anglorum, Chronica majora, Part III; Continuation of Chronica maiora.  This manuscript is now in the collection of the British Library.

This sketch is believed to have been executed between 1250 and 1259.
