A long-range view of the smallpox ships.

The smallpox ships.

Repro ID: H4158
Description: The smallpox ships 'Atlas', 'Castalia' and 'Endymion' in Long Reach. This long-range view underlines just how isolated the ships were in a spot where the river was 800 metres wide. This also shows how prominent they would have been to all shipping moving up or down the river.
