Object details:

Object ID PAH3275
Description A view of the city of London, with the Royal Hospital (bottom of the hill) and the Royal Observatory (left-hand side). A one legged Greenwich pensioner stands by a telescope watching the river. Couples are out strolling, children are playing and people are having picnics. Despite this peaceful scene, the city itself is large and sprawling and there are already many chimneys visible spewing thick smoke into the air. See PAH8024, another copy.
