The Cadogan Pier Cheyne Walk Chelsea.
The Cadogan Pier Cheyne Walk Chelsea.
N. Handford Esq. Archt. C. Warren, delt.
Published April 17th 1841, by T. Faulkner, Chelsea.
Very scarce lithograph, two perspectives (viewed from the bank and the river) printed on a single sheet. Tipped into album page, sheet 330 x 485mm (13 x 19").
There was insufficient accommodation on the riverbank for passenger steamboats in the 1840s and piers were built into the Thames to accommodate them. Cremorne Gardens had its own landing place, with a regular service from London. In 1840 Old Swan pier and Chelsea Mall pier served the steamboats, but by 1841 Earl Cadogan had erected Cadogan pier in Cheyne Walk, designed by N. Handford, catering for a large number of summer passengers. The pier was rebuilt c. 1875 to accommodate Albert Bridge. Perhaps from the architect's prospectus.
