This early photograph shows John Wesley's monument in the garden of Wesley's Chapel, still with its original metal railings. The gentleman in front, probably a minister or preacher, leans on a chair which is still in John Wesley's House today. Likely, it was already in the house when Wesley was living there.
The house in the background of the picture has since been demolished and all houses in this area have been rebuilt.
