Title: Chatham Reach?
Post by: mikeb on October 25, 2013, 20:28:27
I recently came across this drawing by Thomas Rowlandson, un-dated but probably 1780-1800, ish.

It interests me as my forebears were watermen on the Medway around this time. But, can anyone suggest where the view is taken from? The original print suggest buildings on the right of the picture, perhaps the Gun and Anchor Wharves, so I wonder if we a re looking down stream from somewhere around where Sun Pier stands now ?
