Repro ID: H0396
Description: A spritsail Barge in the Upper Pool approaching London Bridge. This is a reverse view of the photographs taken from the bridge, and many people can be seen crossing the bridge. From the bridge eastwards are the offices of the Thames Steamboat Company, the Fresh Wharf and Cox's Quay. All these buildings were replaced by Adelaide House and the New Fresh Wharf between the world wars. The spire of the church of St Magnus the Martyr and the Monument are visible in the background.
