is a city which exhibits a great variety of picturesque points of view,
all differing from each other in character. The view here given
is taken from the lofty heights which border the Saone at the point
where the river takes a sudden turn, and flows directly towards the
city. This may more properly be called a view of the suburbs, as the
city is built on level ground immediately below the heights, in the
angle formed by the confluence of the Saone and Rhone. It is from

bridge over the-Saone, which is partly seen in this view. The
neighbourhood of Lyons has of late years become considerably
beautified, and numerous villas have been built on the varied grounds
bordering the two rivers. The exclusion of English manufactures from
the continent for so manyyearsgave great prosperity to those of France,
and especially to the silks of Lyons, which have acquired great repute
over the whole continent of Europe.
