WORK 16/376; is an illustration,
said to be from about 1680, of the permanent gallows at Tyburn,
which stood where Marble Arch now stands. This necessitated
a three-mile cart ride in public from Newgate prison to the
gallows. Huge crowds collected on the way and followed the accused
to Tyburn. They were used as the gallows for London offenders
from the 16th century until 1759.
Note the size of this structure:
about 4 metres tall, it was capable of hanging nine people at
a time. The victim was led up to the gallows on a cart, put
in the noose and the cart driven away.
