The launch of the East Indiaman 'Edinburgh'
Drawing entitled 'The launch of the Honourable East India Company's ship 'Edinburgh'..., 1825. The title derives from the lithographs (PAG7006 and PAH8485, in the NMM collection) made from the drawing by Huggins's assistant and (from 1834) son-in-law Edward Duncan, and published in August 1827. The 'Edinburgh' was built by Wigram & Green at Blackwall and launched on 9 November 1825. The ship on the stocks on the left is the 'Abercrombie Robinson' which was launched the following year. The view is from a boat in the Thames looking roughly north, with the Blackwall mast house visible above the 'Edinburgh' on the edge of the Brunswick Dock.
