    About

    This art print shows a birds eye view along the Thames towards the City of London with the new dock on the north side. The original artwork was created by the British painter William Daniell in 1803. The long inscription below the image reveals a lot about London's aspirations at the turn of the century: "This view represents the first part of the Works, as they will appear when finished, which are now executing in Wapping near the Tower, by the patriotic exertions of the London Dock Company, for the improvement of the Port of London. The bason which is here shewn is 1260 feet in length & 690 feet in breadth, containing an Area of 20 Acres, and its object is the accommodation of vessels employed in every branch of Commerce, for which extensive ranges of appropriate Warehouses are preparing within the enclosure. This great public work is conceived on the scale calculated to support the dignity of the Nation, and the important interests of its Commerce, and will, when compleated, in conjunction with other magnificent works, either in progress or contemplation, render this Metropolis ultimately the first Port, as it is already the first City in the World." The original is dedicated by the engraver to the directors of the London Dock Company.
