|Description: The 1475-ton East Indiaman 'Warley', one of the larger and more famous vessels of the East India Company, is shown in three positions off Blackwall, on the Thames, at sunset. The 'Warley' was built by John Perry of Blackwall in 1795, the second vessel of the name that he built for the same owner. The tall building to the left of centre is the Blackwall Yard mast house, with its gibbet for lowering the masts into ships clearly visible.|
