London Thames view, looking upriver towards Lambeth Palace (the London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury) from Whitehall Stairs. Lambeth is seen in distance at left, on the south bank of the river. In the foreground are gabled buildings, with a range extending closer to the river, and then a short building on piers over the water. In front of this, a wooden walkway ends in a dock and a cluster of ferry boats.
