This is a rare view of the Thames and Greenwich Marsh looking due north from One-Tree Hill in Greenwich Park, about 1725, where an elegant company are enjoying the prospect with an artist (perhaps Tillemans) sketching the scene shown. Large houses, including a formal garden, at the end of East Greenwich are visible below the hill and ships on the river beyond include a naval frigate and sloop-rigged royal yacht going downstream. Greenwich Marsh (now North Greenwich or the 'Greenwich Peninsula') is entirely fields and hedgerows. To lower right, the isolated building with a jetty to the river at the modern position of Lovell's Wharf/Granite Wharf is the Greenwich powder magazine of 1694, otherwise known from a print of 1738 by W. H. Toms (PAD2175).
