In the lower right three large barges are tied to Simon's Wharf. Spanning the Thames in the distance is a bridge with smaller vessels arranged below. A man leans on a wall, dock-side, gazing out at the river scene. Across from him, standing on one of the barges are two men, who are also gazing upon the Thames as two groups of punters row past. Grand wharf buildings line the opposite shore of the Thames and in the distance above them are the twin onion domes of a church. (Monica Jensen 04/09/93)
