Description:Etching by t. hall. 16*21.5 cm. Sited at the landing place of the old Itchen Ferry, the Cross House provided shelter for those using the ferry. It consisted of two walls crossing each other at right angles, supporting a conical tiled roof, thus giving shelter from wind in any direction. It is a medieval structure, the base possibly being the boundary cross from Itchenworth. T. Hall was an aquatint engraver of architectural views, sections and plans. He was working in the early 19th century.
