Additional Information about the Print

Commissioned by Francis H Crittall, J.P., of the Essex firm Crittall Windows, for Christmas 1932.

A view towards Blackfriars railway and road bridges, with the new Unilever House, built 1930-31, the year before the etching, prominent to the right of the silhouette of the City of London School. The inclusion of Unilever House, which certainly appears to have metal windows, suggests they were supplied by Crittalls.

(This plate has erroneously also been previously catalogued as “On the Thames – the Pool of London”)

Other titles commissioned by the Crittall family are:

All except The Circus are included in the exhibition.
