Repro ID: H6259
Title: Leaving Wapping Police Stairs.
Description: A police skiff is rowed away from the waterside stairs at Wapping River Police Station. Officers could sometimes spend more than eight hours a day in the boats. Whatever the weather, the police had to go on patrol and high winds and strong currents could make rowing the boats immensely difficult.
