Description: The 'Albert Victor' ambulance steamer at the pier at Long Reach. The Metropolitan Asylums Board bought a fleet of paddle steamers to ferry patients, staff and supplies from the ambulance wharves in Rotherhithe and Blackwall out to the hospital ships in Long Reach. At Long Reach and Rotherhithe, long piers allowed patients to be moved to and from the steamers whatever the state of the river.
