This thread is for pictures of real places that make an appearance in Emma.
Here's one that shows up in, among others, episode 4 - the Triple Arch entrance to London's Hyde Park.

... and here's Picadilly Circus, where Hakim's elephants stopped the traffic, in episode 3.

...and St. Paul's Cathedral. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1673, the cathedral is one of the two or three most famous landmarks of London.

Amazingly, it survived the Blitz with little or no damage - partly through the devoted efforts of a crew of live-in firefighters, the fire watch.

More pictures of it here:

In episode 1, we see the Triple Arch (from my post #756, above), so we know it's Hyde Park. However... the Crystal Palace was rebuilt in Sydenham, in the park that now bears its name.

This is a picture of the final site of the Crystal Palace, at Sydenham, such as it now is.

This is the Ordnance Survey Map of Sydenham, c. 1865. In the lower left corner you will find the Crystal Palace.

Now THAT gives me an idea:


Let's mark all the important places on this map.

Heh... I was actually working on a version of that map with pretty little circles with numbers in it - but your solution is better.

Hmm. In this case, it's easy to export a JPG file, isn't it?
By using ImageMagick, notes.pl can combine a base image with several notes easily.. As for notes on Manga, you have to put translated text into bubbles properly, erasing base Japanese text. Well, it's difficult.

We are told that Emma lives in "Marylebone Street". As it happens, there are THREE streets of this name, in the Marylebone quarter... so which one is it?
>> No.781  
These days, that "High Street" is Marylebone High Street, while the perpendicular Marylebone Street is now just New Cavendish Street. However, there's also a Marylebone Lane and Marylebone Mews.

Yes, but at the time of Emma, New Cavendish street was just the short bit between Upper Marylebone Street (UMS) and Greater Marylebone Street (GMS).

Marylebone Lane (ML) is also visible in that map, in >>780 above. It's the twisty lane below the "Great" in Great Marylebone Street.

In other news, has anyone noticed that the estate of the Jounes' has moved from being a large palatial house, obviously located inside London's boroughs, to a more country-estate type of place?

Looky, looky: picture from volume 1 page 31 and from Episode 2 of the anime.

Obviously, the animation crew felt they wanted to emphasise the wealth of the Jounes family.

BTW, can anyone recognise the Jounes estate in the anime? I've been browsing pics of stately homes for the past couple of days, and I haven't found one that looks just like that - though several have come close. I suspect that it's an amalgam of several.

Seen during Emma's and William's chat near the end of ep. 4, the Prince Albert Memorial was unveiled in 1876 by Queen Victoria, as a memorial to her late husband, Prince Albert.

The architect was Sir Gilbert Scott, and the monument features the sculpture of numerous artists.

Here's an actual photograph of Regent Street (the long, curved street on which part Hakim's and William's elephantback excursion took place). The picture is from the late 19th century, and is therefore from Emma's time.

Note the extreme similarities between this picture and the anime's rendition - the animators have seen this exact picture, I guarantee it.

Designed between 1811 and 1830, by John Nash (with inspiration from the Rue de Rivoli in Paris), Regent Street and Regent's Park were intended to provide a residential quarter for the increasing number of affluent Londoners.

Umm... I'm actually in London right now. I was wondering if the area of Marylebone was destroyed in the Blitz. Maybe I can take pictures of where Emma supposedly lives. And of course I'll take the usual pictures of Hyde Park and stuff.
>> No.882  
This is where you'll find the various Marylebone streets nowadays:


FON would place Emma's place a bit further west, though: See >>777 for more discussion.

By all means go have a look, and tell us.

Only distinguishing difference is the missing window in the tympanum (which in itself was a pretty strange thing for Morland to put there).
D├ęchy [10660721ff] has enough material for it to have possibly served as a reference, however it's most likely a false positive, heh.

Dear Iitran translation group,

Greetings. I am researching the Marylebone area you mention and would love to know the source of your map (File: 1114526878236.jpg) which is a very beautiful one.

Many thanks,
