Repro ID: H5848
Description: A splendid view of the Greenland Dock with the Isle of Dogs and the entrance to the Millwall Docks visible beyond. Although the Greenland Dock could receive vessels of over 12,000 tons the problems in manoeuvring such ships in the congested and relatively small expanse of dock water could be huge.
