A watercolour by James Lawson Stewart (1829 -1911) annotated 'Cairns Whiting and Flour Mills, Lambeth River Front'. The building is in fact that of James Cann; Bone, Soap, Lime and Whiting Merchant of Upper Fore Street and Princes Street. Stewart painted views of the streets and buildings of the cities where he lived, drawing from life or after earlier prints and drawings, and these watercolours were given to his landlord in lieu of rent. The scene depicted here is almost certainly taken from a photograph of c.1865 by William Strudwick.Ref: 2010/18
