Detail from Smith’s New Plan of London with the Docks at Wapping & Blackwall (London: Printed for C. Smith, 1807). Covent Garden Theatre is the L-shaped building in the northeast corner of the open square marked “Covent Garden.” Drury Lane Theatre is the black rectangle at the middle right of the image, nestled between Drury Lane, Russell Street, and Bridges St. (part of which was known as Catherine St.).
