This early etching and aquatint shows the Steyne as it was in 1806. It shows Henry Holland's Marine Pavilion, the building which was subsequently incorporated into John Nash's Royal Pavilion. The dome of the riding stables had been completed the year before and can be seen behind the rotunda of the Marine Pavilion. 

The large building to the right is the Castle Inn and Assembly Rooms, the centre of social life in the town at the time. 

The building to the right foreground is Donaldson's Library, one of only two buildings on the east side of the Steyne at the time. It was shortly to be developed.
