Repro ID: PU1440
Description: A print of the West India Import Dock in 1817. Most depictions of the dock from that time stress the number or size of the ships, Gwyllt's imposing warehouses or the sheer expanse of the dock, but Varrall's view is relatively modest.
Creator: I. C. Varrall (artist & engraver): W. Clarke (publisher)
Date: 1 April 1817
