Object ID PAE2037
Description A pencil study, probably from the Observatory, looking over the town centre roofs toward the river. The dome of the Greenwich Foot Tunnel entrance (1902) can be seen to the left of the bulk of the old Ship Hotel, centre. On the lower right is the west wing of what is now the NMM and to its left the Romney Road frontage of the Dreadnought Hospital (formerly the Greenwich Hospital Infirmary and now the Dreadnought Library of Greenwich University). This item was originally dated around 1910, but it relates to an oil painting of Greenwich exhibited in 1924 (and a parallel print, see PAF0715), though both could have been done from earlier sketches. For notes regarding the date (likely to be January 1924), see PAF1305.
Date made probably 1924
