Drawn & Engraved by W.m Daniell, & Published by him at No.9 Cleveland Street, Fitzroy Square, London, Oct.r 20. 1803
Coloured aquatint, sheet 505 x 870mm (19½ x 34¼"). Surface loss in places, general paper tone, scratch centre right.
Brunswick Dock, Blackwall, named after the ducal house in honour of George III, with text describing its history. The dock was the first wet dock with gates on to the Thames, and its main feature was a large tower containing a crane for raising or fitting masts to tall ships, visible here. One of six large aquatints by William Daniell of the new docks then being excavated to reduce congestion in the Pool of London. Daniell (1769-1837) was one of the few artists of the period who was as skilled as an aquatinter as he was a painter. It was common practice to add engraved or etched lines to give shape to the tonal effect of the aquatint; this plate is pure aquatint, with no added lines, not even on the rigging of the boats. The margins have been given a grey wash in imitation of watercolour presentation of the period. A painting of the same scene by Daniell, which may have been executed in preparation for this engraving, is in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich (BHC1867).

In 1827 a group of philanthropists founded the Destitute Sailors' Asylum. This is a very rare view inside the converted warehouse in Dock Street they used, north of the London Docks in London's East End. At first, the Asylum provided shelter and food for shipwrecked and destitute seamen, but it soon became clear that many other seamen needed help. A committee was set up and funds were raised to build a Sailors' Home in nearby Well Street. This opened in 1835.

Large and impressive view of the Black Eagle brewery complex located around Brick Lane in the Spitalfields area of east London, featuring several figures and dray horses pulling wagons, most laden with beer barrels. Thomas Fowell Buxton joined the company in 1808 and The Brick Lane brewery became known as Truman, Hanbury, Buxton & Co. Buxton improved the brewing process, converted the works to steam power and, with the rapid expansion and improvement of Britain's road and rail transport networks, the Black Eagle label soon became famous across Britain (by 1835 the brewery was producing some 200,000 barrels of porter a year). In 1888, Truman, Hanbury, Buxton & Co became a public company with shareholders, but the balance of production was now shifting to Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire. The Brick Lane facility remained active through a take-over by the Grand Metropolitan Group in 1971 and a merger with Watney Mann in 1972, but it was in terminal decline. It eventually closed in 1988. The old brewery buildings still stand in Brick Lane, where they have become home to an arts and events centre and various fashionable shops and bars.

The 'Elizabeth' entering the St Katharine Docks on the opening day. The complex was made-up of two connected basins, the east dock and the west dock. Two steam engines designed by James Watt pumped water to maintain the water level in the docks. The docks had over a million square feet of storage area to house items such as tea, rubber, wool, marble, ivory, tallow and turtle shell. Despite this, the docks were never a great financial success and were finally closed in 1968, having long run at a loss. They were sold by the Port of London Authority to the Greater London Council.

[n.d. c.1920.]
Etching, signed in pencil. Plate 202 x 252mm. 8 x 10".
A view across a busy River Thames, with various steam barges and rowing vessels, towards the Tower of London. William L. Wyllie (1851-1931) was born on July 5th 1851, in London. He attended Heatherley’s art school until the age of fifteen, leaving to study at the Royal Academy Schools, where he won the Turner Medal at the age of eighteen. In the early 1870’s Wyllie became an illustrator for the Graphic and also held several exhibitions at the galleries of the Fine Art Society. In 1889 he was elected an associate of the Royal Academy, where he exhibited his work in 1901. Wyllie spent much of his time at sea working for the White Star Shipping Line. He also served in the Royal Navy during WWI, painting seascapes and coastal landscapes. His etchings and watercolours showing working life on the Thames and the Medway brought him widespread popularity. Later in his life he played an important role in the restoration of the Victory. Wyllie died on the 6th April 1931 in Hampstead, and scouts from the 1st Portchester Sea Scout Troop, which he had founded, rowed his coffin across Portsmouth Harbour for his burial at Portchester Castle.

Colored aquatint. Printed area: 780 x 405mm (30¾ x 16"). Few marks in sky on left. Unexamined out of frame.
A fine aquatint by William Daniell; one of the earliest depctions of the London Docks in Wapping, which opened in January 1805. William Daniell was a much travelled landscape painter. In 1784 he went to India with his uncle, the artist Thomas Daniell, where he assisted Thomas with his drawing and sketching. By the time they returned to England in 1794, William was not only a proficient draughtsman but had also perfected the art of aquatinting. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1807 and a Royal Academician in 1822. He refused the post of draughtsman to an Australian expedition to instead make numerous sketching tours throughout England and Scotland. Daniell is regarded as a superb aquatinter and his best works are thought to be among his Scottish views for ‘Voyage Round Great Britain’. He died in London in 1837.

Drawn and Engraved by W.m Daniell, & Published by him, at No. 9 Cleveland Street, Fitzroy Square, London, Jan.y 1, 1803.
Coloured aquatint. 450 x 790mm (17¾ x 31"). Toning in margins. Very fine.
A wonderful bird's-eye view, looking down on the docks, with the Tower of London and St Paul's Cathedral behind. William Daniell RA (1769-1837) was one of the few artists of the period who was as skilled as an aquatinter as he was a painter. It was common practice to add engraved or etched lines to give shape to the tonal effect of the aquatint; this plate is pure aquatint, with no added lines, not even on the rigging of the boats. The margins have been given a grey wash in imitation of watercolour presentation of the period.
