Description: This scene of Victorian Greenwich indicates something of the hectic life on the river in the late 19th century. For centuries the river was the life blood of trade into the City of London and ships were constantly passing Greenwich on their way to load or unload goods. Cadets of the Marine Society trained on ships in the river before being sent to sea.
Creator: Claude T. S. Moore (1853-1901)
