Description of Vauxhall Gardens in 1820 from the Ambulator,

A Description of Vauxhall Gardens in 1820.
From London and its Environs
or the General
or Pocket Companion.
This important and comprehensive description in the 12th edition Ambulator of 1820 appears to have been missed by most researchers into Vauxhall Gardens. I include it here because of the fullness of the description of the gardens in its twilight period, although it managed to survive for nearly another forty years. 

Vauxhall Gardens by George Cruikshank
from the Comic Almanack
For July 1835.
