Repro ID: H2390
Description: Huge piles of timber, known as 'deals', are stacked in the Station Yard at Rotherhithe prior to distribution by horse-drawn wagons. Carts and wagons loaded with goods from the docks were a regular sight in the streets of maritime London well into the 20th century. In the background, the masts of a sailing vessel are evident. The ship is probably a barque engaged in the Scandinavian timber trade.
