The ship 'Matilda' and cutter 'Zephyr'
'The ship 'Matilda' and cutter 'Zephyr', are being identified by the names on the flags shown. These are common ship names: George Green did own a South Sea whaler called 'Matilda' , which he bought in 1830 to begin his involvement in that trade, but the present vessel looks much more like a passenger and cargo ship. The 'Zephyr' under her stern is almost certainly a pilot cutter operating out of Gravesend, which is seen on the right, with Tilbury Fort on the left, locating the scene in the lower Thames.
