Description:
A black and white enlarged print taken from an original sepia toned card mounted photograph of the Thames, a river steamer arriving at its destination on the Thames River, perhaps at Springbank Park.
Notes:
The original photograph which this print is taken from has the photographer's stamp on the reverse.

According to Ken McTaggart's book: "London's Darkest Hours," the steamboat Thames was registered in June 1888 by it's owner and captain David Foster, and scuttled in August 1899. At the peak of its popularity the Thames made up to 5 trips a day to Springbank in the summer. Moonlight excursions were offered with piano music for added enjoyment. The convenience of street trolleys to Springbank and the draw of Port Stanley with its beach helped to bring an end to excursion boats on the Thames River.

The photographer John Hood left London permanently in 1891 for the west coast, thus this photograph is dated ca. 1888-1891.
