Crowley's Wharf in Greenwich.

Repro ID: PY0113
Description: This is a rare view of Crowley's Wharf and warehouse, looking west towards Greenwich Hospital from what is now Anchor Iron Wharf. Figures on the quayside overlook three lighters and a ramp going down to the water, with small boats lightly sketched out in the river. Other vessels are also moored alongside with more off Crane Wharf. Beyond the riverfront is the Crown and Sceptre tavern which was the easternmost building on Crane Street before it opens on Trinity Hospital Wharf. The warehouse is probably that built by the Newcastle ironmaster Sir Ambrose Crowley after he acquired what became Crowley House in 1704.
