Defoe in the pillory N110160

MAYSON BEETON COLLECTION. Engraving of Daniel Defoe in the pillory at Temple Bar, July 1703. In December 1702 Defoe had published a political pamplet entitled "Shortest Way with the Dissenters" which satirised the high-church arguments of those Tories who wished to abolish the practice of occasional conformity (which allowed Dissenters to hold office). In May 1703, when his authorship was discovered, Defoe was arrested for seditious libel and was sentenced to a large fine, to stand in the pillory three times and was sent to Newgate prison. Defoe stood in the pillory on 29, 30, and 31 July, ringed with protective supporters

Alhambra Leicester Square CC97_00503

Alhambra theatre, Leicester Square, Westminster, London 1870-??82. York & Son wet collodion glass plate negative.
The Alhambra in London'??s Leicester Square was the brainchild of the impresario and showman Edward Tyrell Smith who bought it in 1858 for the staging of circus acts and later musical theatre. Its Moorish styling included domes, minarets, and horseshoe arches. A fire in 1882 led to its rebuilding, but it was demolished in 1936 as the popularity of music hall entertainment declined. It was replaced by an Oden Cinema (see BB87_03577)
