Artist's Description

A cold, foggy, winter afternoon at Greenwich. But then the fog can add some charm to a photo. Especially when the sun is trying to break through the clouds.

This is view of Queens House and Canary Warf from Greenwich Park.
Queen’s House has a long history. One of the finest houses in England was initially built in 1427 by Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester (Henry V’s brother) and was called Bella Court. It accumulated the First Great Private Library in England. Henry VIII was born in Bella Court in 1491. He spent much of his time at Greenwich. In 1533 Anne Boleyn gave birth to Elizabeth I here. It was during a tournament in the park at Greenwich that Anne supposedly dropped here handkerchief as a signal to her lover, a gesture that was spotted by Henry and which led Anne to her doom at Tower Green in 1536.
James I made Greenwich over to his wife Anne of Denmark, and in 1616 Inigo Jones was commissioned to built a house for her at Greenwich. Anne died before the house was finished but it was passed onto Prince Charles’s wife Henrietta Maria and completed in 1635 as the First Palladian House in Britain. The Queen’s house as it is still known is part of the National Maritime Museum.
Extracts from I never Knew That About London by C. Winn

Canary Warf was originally constructed in 1937 for handling cargoes of fruit from Canary Islands. Its regeneration began in 1980s. Canary Warf appears in the Guinness Book of Records as the Largest Commercial Development in the World and features three of the tallest buildings in Britain.
