Shipbuilding on the Thames at Redriff
A scene showing the south bank of the Thames at Rotherhithe, looking east to the tower of St Anne's church, Limehouse. Although the shipyard has not been positively identified, it may have been Quallet's at Pitcher's Point. In the early 18th century ribbon development along the Thames linked Deptford to Rotherhithe and London. Daniel Defoe commented in 1724 that 'the docks and building yards on the riverside between the town of Deptford and the street of Redriff or Rotherhithe are effectually joined and building daily increased'.
