Aspects of the pleasure garden in Gravesend, Kent. The gardens were laid out in 1837 by George Jones (a businessman from Islington in north London) in one of the disused chalk pits in Northfleet, covering an area of 17 acres.

They became a favourite destination for thousands of Londoners during good weather, many travelling by paddle steamer down the River Thames to disembark at the pier built to service the gardens. They closed in 1901. These views were printed for visitors as souvenirs, from a press in the gardens themselves; they represent a scarce and interesting pictorial record of the early history of Victorian outdoor recreation.

Engraving 495 x 660mm. Trimmed to plate, centre fold, minor nicks and scratches
Explanation and Key to plan and elevation left and right. Sheerness was the focus of an attack by the Dutch navy in June 1667, when 72 hostile ships during the Raid on the Medway compelled the little 'sandspit fort', to surrender and landed a force which for a short while occupied the town. Impressed by the civil behaviour of the Dutch marines - they paid for their dinner - the town reinvited the Dutch Marine Corps for the third centennial of the raid. Pepys at Gravesend remarked in his diary 'we do plainly at this time hear the guns play' and in fear departed to Brampton in Huntingdonshire. Sheerness was also the site of a Royal Dockyard which, although not as large as those at Chatham and Deptford was still of some importance in Tudor and Stuart England. During the Victorian age a warship was built which still exists - HMS Gannet (an 'Osprey' class Sloop) which was launched on 31 August 1878.

R. Paton pinxt. 1778. C Canot aqua fortis. W. Watts sculp.
London Published 1 March 1803 by B. B. Evans in the Poultry.
Etching and engraving, scratched letter proof before title, 510 x 690mm. 20 x 27¼". Laid on card; two vertical creases through centre.
Sheerness, beside the mouth of the River Medway on the northwest corner of the Isle of Sheppey in north Kent. Sheerness began as a fort built in the 16th century to protect the River Medway from naval invasion. In 1665, plans were first laid by the Navy Board for a Royal Navy dockyard where warships might be provisioned and repaired, a site favored by Samuel Pepys, then Clerk of the Acts of the navy, for shipbuilding over Chatham. After the raid on the Medway in 1667, the older fortification was strengthened; in 1669 the Royal Navy dockyard was established, where warships were stocked and repaired until its closure in 1960. An impressive scene after Richard Paton (1717 - 1791), painter of marine subjects. With an etched crest below image.
