The 'Royal George' at Deptford showing the launch of 'The Cambridge'
This picture is a composite of two events, set at Deptford, combining the launch of the 'Cambridge', on 21 October 1755 with a view of the 'Royal George', 100 guns, which was in reality launched a year later at Woolwich Dockyard. To the far left is the Deptford Master Shipwright's house built in 1708 and in the background the great storehouse. Deptford was significant as a centre of maritime and naval activity, and at this time its Royal Dockyard, founded under Henry VIII, was primarily a building, repair and victualling yard.
