About the work
This engraving, after the work of an unknown draughtsman, shows the newly completed Custom House building from the River Thames. In the distance, to the right of the composition, the familiar structure of the Tower of London rises above the surrounding buildings.
The original watercolour after which the print was made is dated 1816 and measures 60 cm in width. It is now in the collection of the Guildhall Library, London. However, both the artist of the watercolour and the engraver of the print have yet to be identified.
