Watercolour showing what are referred to as "Almshouses of Clarkes Charity, c. 1821, copy", St Peters Street, painted after Brabant (this may refer to one of several Brabant sisters).
The red brick building with the balcony appears to be the building on St Peter's Street known as "The Mansion", which would place these almshouses as standing on the site of the Old Town Hall at the junction with Chequer Street. Interestingly, the sign hanging outside reads "White Hart Inn". This building was torn down in 1829 to build the Town Hall. This also means that at the time of painting of the original of which this is a copy, Spencer Street had not been built.
