Peter boats at Greenwich

This vignette, mounted in an album with PAI3425-PAI3541 and PAI3543-PAI3776, is a plate from Cooke's series, 'Shipping and Craft', completed in 1829. Peter boats - of which none survive - were common Thames fishing craft in the 19th century. They had a watertight compartment in the centre, kept flooded through small holes in the hull, in which the catch was kept alive until brought ashore. This was necessary given that the larger boats often went out for up to a week at a time as far as the Thames estuary. The well is clearly visible in the foreground boat, which has a floating fish-keep on the shore beside it. Nets hang to dry on the boat behind.
