A view of London from south of the river, with St Paul's Cathedral and Watt's Shot Tower, Belvedere Road, Lambeth. Sir Thomas Robert Dewar (1864 - 1930) turned his family whisky business into an international success by sponsoring sporting events around the world. In the U.S. there were 'Dewar Challenge Trophys' for Soccer and motor racing. What competition this view celebrates is unknown. Besides his whisky Dewar is known for 'Dewarism', a philosophy stating that success can be attained without compromising joy in life. One of his aphorisms is the famous 'Experience is what you get when you're looking for something else'.
