The new tea warehouses, London Docks, 1845. Creator: Unknown

The new tea warehouses, London Docks, 1845. 'The New Warehouse is situate at the West Quay, on the North-west side of the Docks, and very near the principal entrance from East Smithfield, on the site of the original Superintendent's Office and Baggage-warehouse. It was commenced in May, 1844, and completed in July last, at the cost, we understand, of £100,000. The entire building is in height five stories, of eleven feet each, exclusive of the vault, and is much loftier than any of the London Dock warehouses. The principal, or Tea Warehouse, is 290 feet in length, and 104 feet in width. The superficial area of the Ground floor, exclusive of walls and staircases, being the space available for stowage, &c., is 26,040 square feet. The cubical contents of the space for stowage in the Warehouse is 1,269,450 feet, or about 11,000 tons of ordinary produce; and the capacity, if stowed with tea, would be for 120,000 chests'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII.

Conflagration at Sir C. Price's Wharf, Blackfriars, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Conflagration at Sir C. Price's Wharf, Blackfriars, 1845. The London fire brigade attempting to extinguish a fire '...in the warehouses belonging to Sir Charles Price and Co., oil and colourmen...adjoining Blackfriars-bridge...Now the fears of the inhabitants were raised to a painful pitch, lest there should be an explosion of gas - in which case there must have been fearful devastation...The man who lost his life is known to have been working at the engine that was destroyed; in all probability, he missed his way when he retreated, and, instead of jumping into the river, became fixed against a wooden gate, and was compelled to remain in that situation until the flames came upon him, and burnt him to death. A very small portion of his body was found, which was instantly conveyed to the bone house'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII.

A New-York River-Front, 1874. Creator: William James Palmer Featured Print

A New-York River-Front, 1874. Creator: William James Palmer

A New-York River-Front, 1874. Sailing ships on the quay in New York Harbour, New York, USA. ...a quaint and picturesque scene, lying but a short distance from the Battery on the East-River side. This is a portion of the town which modern improvement has left untouched; the wharves where the old-fashioned ships from far-off ports discharge their precious cargoes; where merchants of the old Knickerbocker quality conduct their business in dark and unsavory chambers; where the old tars...are wont to assemble; where the very idea of a steamship is profanation - a venerable, quaint, and decaying place, dear to the hearts of the ancient mariners'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]
