Stourport-on-Severn from above the bridge. On left where many masts are shown, is the entrance to the Staffordshire and Worcester Canal. Stourport, at the junction of the rivers Stour and Severn, with the coming of canals in England after 1772, grew from just an ale house into a thriving port. Illustration by Samuel Ireland (d1800) for his 'Picturesque Views of the River Severn', (c1795). Hand-coloured. Lithograph.
