Greenwich Hospital from Blackwall reach, May 1871
A view of Greenwich Hospital from almost due north, looking up Blackwall Reach. The tower of Trinity Hospital (almshouse) is on the left and the Trafalgar Tavern just east (left) of the Hospital complex. Greenwich itself is obscured by a sailing ship flying an indistinguishable flag at the main, apparently under tow downstream by a steam paddle tug, and the oil-seed Cumberland Mills (with smoking chimney), built about 1841, almost opposite the Hospital. The last remains of the Mills were demolished in the 1990s. A ketch-rigged Thames barge under full sail on a light westerly wind is in starboard-broadside view in the centre, with smaller sailing vessels around it and a pair of lightermen rowing a lighter with sweeps in the centre left foreground. Greenwich Park is to the left of the Hospital domes with the spire of the Catholic church of Our Lady Star of the Sea on Croom's Hill, far left.
