A charming view from One Tree Hill looking towards the City, showing the Queen's House and Greenwich Hospital in the foreground, with the dome of St Paul's Cathedral on the distant horizon. The peglegged Greenwich Pensioner sitting on the hill is doubtless regaling his captive audience with tales of Trafalgar with Nelson for the hero.
