Label:This is an overall view of Vauxhall Gardens, as if taken from the air. All of the cross walks can be seen with their many arches. The front of the building is in three sections. A wall, a story and a half building, and a two story building . . all joined together. To the left rear is the enclosed section used in winters for concerts and air. In the center section can be seen the band stand. On either side of the central mall are the little supper booths which were decorated with the now famous paintings.
