Launch of the 'Venerable', 74 guns, at Blackwall, 1784
The received title of this oil painting is the 'Launch of HMS 'Venerable' at Blackwall'. The picture shows John Perry's (later Green's) yard at Blackwall on the north bank of the Thames, below Greenwich. 1784 was probably its greatest year under Perry when he had three 74-gun ships (two-deckers) and two 44s for the Navy on the stocks as well as an East Indiaman and a West Indiaman (possibly the vessel on the far right).
