In front of White Tower is St. Thomas's Tower with Traitors' Gate just visible its east bastion is omitted. Behind it is the Great Armoury or Storehouse. On the right is one of the ordinance buildings. Along the waterfront can be seen the easternmost part of the 40 ft. wide quayside. A number of sailing vessels a few anchored and one whith white sails, as well as other craft are seen on the river.
