[Greenland Dock] Howland Great Dock near Deptford.
T. Badeslade Delin. J. Kip Sculp.
[n.d., c.1728.]
Engraving, 18th century watermark. 350 x 420mm (13¾ x 16½"), large margins. Splits in centre fold taped.
An elevated view of Howland Great Wet Dock, Rotherhithe, built 1695-9 to refit East India ships. As it was not created for cargo, there are no warehouses around the main quay but an avenue of trees. In the background is London, with St Paul's Cathedral. Soon after this view was published the Greenland whalers started using the dock and blubber boiling houses were built to render oil and the docks were renamed 'Greenland Dock'. Greenland Dock is the oldest of London's riverside wet docks, located in Rotherhithe in the area of the city now known as Docklands.
