A photograph entitled 'Rotten Row, Hyde Park', published by George Washington Wilson, c. 1890.

Rotten Row is a track on the south side of Hyde Park. In the 18th century it was a fashionable place for Londoners to be seen, though rarely used today the track is still reserved as a place for horse riding.

This photograph is from an album containing sixty photographic views of London, published by George Washington Wilson. Although the photographs were usually marked with Wilson's initials, many were actually taken by assistants like Charles Wilson (1865-1958), his son.
