Croydon Canal
Croydon Canal View towards Deptford from the Lockkeeper's house.
H. Browne [c.1815].
Etching, scarce, platemark 175 x 240mm (7 x 9½") very large margins. Slight tear on right margin.
Very rare view on the Croydon canal, taken from the staircase lock at Honor Oak Park in south London. This was the final lock on the stretch of the canal between New Cross and Forest Hill. The view, looking towards Deptford, also shows parts of Brockley and New Cross. From a series of views along the canal by the same printmaker. The Croydon canal extended from Croydon to New Cross (a plan to extend as far as the docks at Rotherhithe was abandoned) and opened in 1809. It was never successful and closed in 1836.
