Little Greene Inspiration - Marshalsea Prison Renovation

The property from which this design hails was built in the mid-19th century on the site of the infamous Marshalsea Prison, which for nearly 500 years was notorious for the incarceration of London’s debtors, including Charles 
Dickens’ father in 1824. The earliest paper retrieved from a laminate of four, this gothic trellis design with Moorish influences was the first paper to adorn the walls of one of the properties that replaced the prison in the late 1870s.

Matched to an example of original Portland Stone and used to paint the facades of Victorian town houses.
