Landing Oranges at Fresh Wharf, London Bridge, 1874 Featured Print

Landing Oranges at Fresh Wharf, London Bridge, 1874

Engraving showing the belly of a cargo ship, being unloaded of oranges at Fresh Wharf, London. The oranges, in rectangular crates, are being lifted out of the hold by winches then carried ashore by dockworkers. In this picture one can clearly see the large cushions the dockers wore over their head and shoulders, in order to protect them from the crates that they carried on their heads. The oranges were a special cargo brought to London, from warmer climes, just in time for Christmas
