A view of the river Thames. From the steps outside the National Gallery, Millbank, George Davison Reid photographed visitors arriving. In 1926, the state-of-the-art Modern Foreign Galleries were opened to the public. The building's riverside location proved unfortunate when, in 1928, the Thames flooded the lower galleries. The site was re-named 'Tate Gallery' in 1932. Reid photographed the banks of the Thames extensively during the late 1920s and early 30s.
