The launch of the Honourable East India Company's ship 'Edinburgh', 1825, made from the drawing by Huggins and engraved by Huggin's son-in-law Edward Duncan. It was published in 1827. The 'Edinburgh' was built by Wigram & Green at Blackwall and launched on 9 November 1825. The ship on the stocks on the left is the 'Abercrombie Robinson' which was launched the following year. The view is from a boat in the Thames looking roughly north, with the Blackwall mast house visible above the 'Edinburgh' on the edge of the Brunswick Dock. There appears to be a yacht with a figurehead representing 'Fame' and flying the Scottish saltire on the left, and a Trinity House yacht in the right foreground.
