Title: Shipping in the Pool of London, by Robert Dodd.
Description: A variety of sailing ships and boats in the Upper Pool, near the Tower of London. By the end of the 18th century, the Pool of London was too congested to handle the sheer volume of shipping, a situation that led to the building of the first enclosed docks.
