Description: A view west from a mooring tier in Greenwich Reach, off Trinity Hospital, looking towards the Royal Naval College. A steam bucket-dredger can be seen moored on the river. The college lies beyond and left, with the Trafalgar Tavern and Old Crane Wharf waterfront to its east (left), including a jumble of craft on the river foreshore. The Ship Hotel at Greenwich Pier can be seen beyond the college, whose training vessel lies at moorings in the centre distance, with a hay barge to its right and the Deptford foreshore beyond.
