View of the Entrance to the East India Docks with Proposed East London Rail Road
Lithograph 'Sketch'd by S. Hemming, Engineer' [published by] Vear, lithog, 24 Tabernacle Row.' Circa 1827.
Presumed first impression, later impressions (for example the copy in the Science Museum) bear a differently worded imprint: 'S. Hemming Engineer del. Printed by W. N. Vear, 24 Tabernacle Row.'
Size of sheet: 6 1/2" x 9 5/8", laid on card.
Condition: generally excellent throughout.
A very scarce image of London as it might have been. The East London Rail Road was proposed in 1827, however the scheme was never realised.
