Repro ID: H0060
Description: An 1843 'Illustrated London News' engraving of the Episcopal Floating Church, which had been moored in the Pool of London since 1827. It was set up by the founders of the Destitute Sailors' Asylum in Dock Street, north of the London Docks. It provided Anglican services for seamen in the Pool. The ship was originally the Royal Navy sloop 'Brazen' (1808). The Floating Church was broken up in 1848. It was replaced by St Paul's Church in Dock Street.
