One of the earliest and most complete views of Greenwich viewed from the Isle of Dogs. It consists of a detailed presentation of the royal estates at Greenwich as seen from across the Thames and is therefore thought to be a highly political work. On the far left is a large castle-like structure which may be intended to represent Charlton House which was a royal possession. Next, to the right, the twin Armoury towers dominate the middle of the waterfront to make an intentionally powerful statement.
