One of a series of prints produced by Hancock's Brewery. The scene depicts the area in 1800 when the old wooden bridge was still in place. Cargoes were unloaded at the quay below the Hanbury.
It is thought that the series of prints dates from the 1950s. Hancocks distributed the framed views to their Inns - a neat marketing device.
The artist seems to have researched the scene well. It would be interesting to know if it is based on a genuine old view from the same viewpoint.
