Greenwich Peninsula - what do we know??
This really smashing picture has been passed to us by someone who would like to know more about it - and can we say that we have no idea who owns it, where it is or how it got to the person who sent it to us - so, sorry, if it belongs to you - we will remove it if you want, or happy to share any information about the subject matter with you.
It apparently shows the Greenwich Peninsula's west bank by moonlight - we think soon after 1850. Any ideas about any of the features shown on it. It seems to be taken from somewhere around Delta Wharf - and to show a boat builders yard, Cowden. In the distance is Greenwich Hospital and - I am told Our Lady Star of the Sea. Other buildings appear to be the telegraph cable works of what would have been at that date probably Glass Elliott.
