Greenwich from the Point, circa 1820
A view north and a little east over Greenwich from Blackheath Point - still a notable local viewpoint - in a landscape octagonal format. St Alfege, the parish church, is seen through trees on the left, Greenwich Hospital and the Thames beyond the town in the centre distance. An elegant but rather miniature and compact figure group stands in the left foreground on the lower slope of the Point, with a drum-like brick structure beyond (possibly a conduit head) just to the right of a house at what is probably the junction of Maidenstone Hill (leading left) with Point Hill. Four horses are pulling a cart up Point Hill, with four other figures standing beside this at the edge of the road. A block of buildings above the cart, seen against the trees of Greenwich Park, are probably the backs of houses on Croom's Hill.
