Wedding Party Naval Row

Frank Creber
Wedding Party at Naval Row. (SOLD) The painting began as a drawing made on location at Naval Row a street in London E14, it is a location I like to draw at because it has a lot of interest, the O2 arena can be seen from here, the docklands light railway runs on stilts not so far away, the Naval Row street itself has a beautiful row of London Plain trees lining an upper level walkway. The Historical significance of Naval Row: The East India Company was formed when, in 1600, the ‘Governor and Company of London Merchants trading into the East Indies’ were granted a license to trade by Elizabeth I. Blackwall Yard, established at Poplar by the East India Dock Company in 1614, was the first on the Isle of Dogs and developed into the nation’s most productive shipbuilding yard by the late 18th century. The main facilities for the yard included slipways for new ship-building, dry docks for repair and basins for fitting-out and refitting.
