Free-trade wharf
Description:
A view on the Thames, taken from Limehouse. On a timbered wharf at the right stands a large warehouse, the top left of which is open on the river side and at the far end. Beyond narrow buildings, another large warehouse with many windows is built along a basin from which projects the bow of a ship. From a square warehouse across the basin stretches a row of irregular buildings, in front of which lie numerous sailing vessels and small boats. Out in the river, at the left, is a cluster of ships. Near the timbered wharf are two rowboats with a man in each.
