Humphrey's Yard

Figure 9: This copy of a William Birch print illustrates another warship, the subscription warship, the U.S. Philadelphia, under construction in Humphrey’s Yard in Southwark. The spire of Old Swedes Church is in the background and gives some idea of scale to the immensity of the construction.
The illustration, a gift of Mrs. Joseph R. Stuib, is part of the collection at ISM, and it is used here courtesy of Craig Bruns, Collection Manager.
