The pensioner's story
Set in front of the King Charles Court of Greenwich Hospital, with the Thames out of view to the left, this shows a bearded and uniformed Greenwich Pensioner with a wooden leg, talking to a visiting couple and a young boy. The pensioner leans heavily on a walking stick held in his left hand and he gestures with his right. Behind him to the left, is a waterman holding a boathook in his right hand, while behind the well-dressed couple, to the right, another pensioner sits dozing on a bench.
