This is the earliest painted view of Putney. Looking upriver from Putney Bridge, it shows the riverside village of Putney on the left with the fifteenth-century tower of St. Mary's parish church nearby. The first bridge connecting Putney and Fulham, of which only a fragment is seen here, was the wooden structure built in 1729. It was superseded by the present stone bridge which was built in 1882-6. The charge for crossing was a penny for foot passengers and up to two shillings for vehicles. At this date Putney was only a small village but it was already noted for the beauty of its villas, orchards and market gardens.
