Mr S. Wyatt's plan.

Repro ID: F0205
Description: The subtitle of this plan is 'The proposed London Docks compared with those proposed at the Isle of Dogs'. In the final decade of the 18th century Wyatt proposed that new docks be constructed at Wapping and on the Isle of Dogs. Wyatt also suggested that the Wapping dock be connected to the Thames at Blackwall by a canal, which would reduce the time it took ships to journey up river. Although his canal scheme was not adopted, docks were eventually built at the locations he envisaged (the London Docks and West India Docks).
