Regent's Canal, London

Mounted with PAD1415, PAD1417.

An atmospheric engraving after a work by the celebrated artist Peter De Wint (1784-1849), more known for his landscapes. The Regent's Canal was built to link the Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal (opened in 1801) with the Lower Pool of London at Limehouse. It enabled goods arriving in London to be moved by barge anywhere on the main canal network. Work began in 1812 and the canal opened in 1820. The engraving shows lighters and barges in the City Road Basin in Islington, one of the busiest loading and unloading points on the canal.
