Object ID PAD2220
Description Vignette.; Technique includes etching. A typical view of the Royal Hospital, Greenwich, and the Thames as seen from Greenwich Hill. Greenwich's maritime history stems from its location on the Thames: there was a substantial fishing community until the late-19th century as well as much shipping activity related to London's role as a major port. The strong naval connections began in 1694 with the establishment of the Royal Hospital for Seamen, subsequently the Royal Naval College, and with the role of the Royal Observatory in advancing navigation and astronomy from the 1670s.
Date made 19th century
