View of Mr Perry's Yard, Blackwall
Oil painting entitled 'View of Mr Perry's Yard, Blackwall' painted during the early years of French Revolutionary War (1793-1801). Shipbuilding at Blackwall began in the 16th century but was regularized when the East India Company developed a yard there in the early 17th century. The company sold it around 1650 and from 1708 the Perry family of shipbuilders became involved there, later as its managing owners. It continued to build Indiaman, warships and other vessels and by the late 18th century was the biggest private yard in the world. In addition to wet and dry-docks, there were timber yards, saw pits, cordage works, rigging shops, draughtsmen's offices and foundries - all employing hundreds of craftsmen.
