This print is from a set of illustrations sold together as "Views in Weston Park by a Leading Local Artist". It shows the monument to Ebeneezer Elliot, known as the "Corn Law Rymer". It dates from 1854, and previously stood on Market Street. The statue is Grade II listed and is still in the park today. Weston Park was orginally part of the grounds of Weston Hall, and both were bought by Sheffield Council in 1873.
