A view of the East India Docks
An inscription on the print reads 'The East India Docks are solely for the accommodation of shipping employed by the English East India Company...'. The aerial perspective view is from the north-west with the tongue of Greenwich marshes (Blackwall Point, now the site of the Dome) in the distance and Greenwich itself far right. Immediately on the viewer's side of the river is the Brunswick Dock (built 1789-1790, see BHC1867 and PAI7125) with the adjacent Blackwall mast house and Perry's shipyard on the right. To its north in the middle distance is the East India Import Dock which had just been completed by the East India Dock Co., when this print was published. The company had been formed for the purpose and to buy Perry's Brunswick basin, which they did in 1806. The separate Thames entrance lock into the Import Dock can be seen on the left, while the small irregularly shaped dock on the far right is the late 17th century Blackwall basin attached to Perry's (later Green's) shipyard.
