A view of St. Pauls circa 1616


From Visscher's Panoramic view of London circa 1616. The ships in the foreground are the eel ships, and the Galley fuste(?). The church lost its steeple in 1561. It was later burned in the Great Fire of London, and replaced by the present St. Pauls, designed by Wren. Beneath St. Paul's is the Three Cranes wharf. The three cranes are just visible. To the left of them is Queen's Hythe, another wharf. The windmill centre left sits on top of a building with a coat of arms on it, and is part of the Water House, no doubt used for pumping water.
