Jacobs Island Print A3

£10

This watercolour by James Lawson Stewart (1887) features Jacob's Island, Rotherhithe.

Dickens wrote about this area in Oliver Twist, 'In such a neighbourhood, beyond Dockhead in the Borough of Southwark, stands Jacob's Island, surrounded by a muddy ditch, six or eight feet deep and 15 or 20 wide when the tide is in, once called Mill Pond, but known in the days of this story as Folly Ditch. It is a creek or inlet from the Thames, and can always be filled at high water by opening the sluices at the Lead Mills from which it took its old name.'

  • Measures A3 (29.5cm x 42cm) with mount. 
  • Comes mounted in white, and packaged in a clear bag.
