A PLAN Shewing the Situation OF THE Public Foreign Sufferance Wharfs Within the Limits set out by the COMMISSIONERS of His Majesty's Customs
Surveyor: Fellows, William
This plan of the upper pool of the Port of London extends from London Bridge to Union Hole. The title is at top left, with a scale bar below the plan. The Public Sufferance Wharves are marked on the plan, while a table at top right reports the dimensions of each wharf in square feet and the amount of merchandise that could be stored in each wharf's warehouse and yard. By the end of the 18th Century, the sufferance wharves had become inadequate for commercial accommodation and in 1793 the first plan was made for wet docks for the port of London in Wapping, the Isle of Dogs and Rotherhithe.
