Description: 'The Thames, or the Triumph of Navigation', by the artist James Barry. The image includes two couplets from the poem 'Cooper's Hill' by Sir John Denham (1615-1669):
Nor are his blessings to his banks confin'd,
But free and common as the sea or wind;
So that to us no thing, no place is strange,
While his fair bosom is the world's exchange.
