An interesting view across the River looking towards Greenwich Hospital. The north bank of the Thames, not yet embanked, presents a rural aspect. The imposing monumentality of the Hospital dominates the scene, although Observatory and St Alfege Church are included in the view, and there is even a rare glimpse of The George Inn, on the site of the present-day Trafalgar Tavern.
£75.00 mounted and framed.
