Photographic view of Mr. Stewart's Blackwall Ironworks, Millwall from "Dockyard Economy and Naval Power" by Patrick Barry, 1863
Medium: Photographic print
The Blackwall Ironworks manufacture marine engines and giant boilers for mercantile vessels. The engine and boiler works are situated on the Isle of Dogs with a river frontage of 400 feet in length, arranged so there is a kind of wet dock with two powerful cranes affording remarkable facilities for putting boilers and other heavy parts of machinery into steamers. The fitting and erecting shops, a pattern shop, blacksmiths' and coppersmiths' shops are all designed by Mr Stewart.
