A view of the first Blackfriars Bridge, built by Robert Mylne from Portland stone, opening 1769. Mylne was a young Scot who had studied architecture in Rome, where he had been befriended by Piranesi.

Painted by W.J. Huggins. Engraved by E. Duncan.

Fine hand-coloured aquatint. 392 x 551mm (13 x 21¾"). Trimmed; repaired tear in title area and upper left-hand corner.
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.

An Elevated View of the New Dock in Wapping.
An Elevated View of the New Dock in Wapping. This View represents the first part of the Works, as they will appear when finished, which are new executing in Wapping near the Tower, by the patiotic exertions of the London Dock Company, for the improvement of the Port of London...
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.
