Hanover Square 1819

Like the preceding, is a fashionable and celebrated place. It was entirely unbuilt in 1716, but its name is mentioned in the plans of 1720, and was built soon after the accession of the present family to the throne. Both here and in George street adjoining, there are several specimens of the German style of building. The square occupies a space of about two acres; the middle is enclosed with a handsome iron railing.
