Panorama of The Thames Project
After four years of work, part one of the project went online recently. A photographic comparison of The Thames at points in history, it contains the whole of the 1829 Georgian Guide, photo panoramas from Richmond and Isleworth, historic pans of the City from 1543, 1616 and 1647, and four new photo panoramas, Strand on the Green, Chiswick, Hammersmith and Westminster. More photo panoramas and features on Samuel Leigh, the riverside in 1829, the comparisons and all the bridges will be added soon after gaining sufficient sponsorship.
Enjoy a quiet... free... journey cruising along the Thames riverside.
