London Sunset Over the Thames in 1895



This scene is looking west just below Tower Bridge, its bascules raised to allow passage of the new arrival into the Pool of London.  Beyond, London Bridge marks the head of navigation for deep-water ships, commerce being extended farther westward by lighters being towed in groups of four or six by steam tugs. To the right, inside the Pool and out of view, is the Tower of London, and nearer to London Bridge, will be Billingsgate Fish Market and the “Long Room” on the second floor of the Customs House where ships’ masters were obligated to report their arrivals and departures.
