Title: Plan of the West India Docks.
Description: Plan entitled 'Plan of the West India Docks & co. Designed and Dedicated to the Directors by their very humble servant. Ralph Walker'. The West India Docks were authorized by Parliament in 1800 and took two years to complete. Built by William Jessop and John Rennie, the docks were situated on the Isle of Dogs. The new enclosed docks helped to counter the crime and congestion that had bedevilled London in the late 18th century.
