Repro ID: H5279
Description: The London Bridge Steam Wharf, on the north bank of the Thames, was the terminus for many steamship companies running servies between London and other ports in Britain and north-western Europe. In Charles Dickens' 'Martin Chuzzlewhit', this is where Tom came to watch the steamboats, and Mrs Gamp waited for the 'Ankworks package' - the Antwerp packet.
