Full image caption

Wooden clinker-built model of the State barge used by the Lord Mayor of London. This large scale model of the City barge was supplied by its builders, Searle & Godfrey of Stangate, Lambeth. Although the model is officially dated 1807, it includes the Royal coat-of-arms of HM Queen Victoria suggesting it was restored post 1837. The City barge was rowed by eighteen watermen and last used for the Lord Mayor's procession in 1856.
