A PLAN Shewing the Situation of the Foreign Sufferance Wharfs
Surveyor: Fellows, William
Plan of the upper pool of the Port of London extending from London Bridge to Union Hole. The plan features title an imprint at top left and indicates the location of the Public Sufferance Wharves. A table at bottom left 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 the purposes of commercial accommodation and in 1793 the first plan was made to construct wet docks for the port of London in Wapping, the Isle of Dogs and Rotherhithe.
