A photograph recording the soon to be lost view of Lambeth's foreshore adjacent Lambeth Palace with Lambeth Pier in the foreground. Also in the background, the piling has just commenced for the construction of Albert Embankment. Charles Woolley in 1915 remarked of this picture: 'The tree life, and the picturesque busy foreshore, and also the narrowing down of Bishop's Walk, are here shown to great advantage. It is a beautiful and exact picture of a very comprehensive scene.' Photographed using the 'wet plate' method by William Strudwick (1834-1910) and dated 10th February 1866.
