|Description: This print depicts the crowded conditions on Custom House Quay, with ships berthed several tiers deep. The cranes that are being used appear to be of the treadmill type. Note also the weighing of cargoes and the gauging of wine casks. The print was produced by the Anti-Gallican Society, which campaigned against French influence in British life. In this case, their targets are French imports such as cheese, wine and brandy.|
