Datchet Bridge, Bucks.

Richmond Bridge. Steel engraving. This plate is unusual in Eighty Picturesque Views of the Thames and Medway, since it one of the few emphasizing a steam ship. In the foreground we see two other forms of moving a vessel through the water — a group of oarsmen rowing a shallop and a man standing in a small boat, propelling it with a single oar at the stern — sail boats appear at the right and on shore at the left.
