Repro ID: H0678
Description: The new dock gates for the entrance to the Regent's Canal enter the water at Limehouse Basin (Regent's Canal Dock) after being pushed down two large wooden slipways. The slipways were covered in grease to assist the movement of the gates. The dock was opened in 1820 in order to connect the Regent's Canal with the River Thames at Limehouse.
