South East View of the Iron Bridge... – bridge 1
The items on this page aren't yet attributed and could come from either Sunderland or Tyneside.
The quality of the engraving suggest perhaps an earlier date (c1800) to the other items on this page. Note the light on the bricks on the underside of the bridge (right detail), and the reflection in the water. These details are lost on later examples. Note that the word Sunderland at the end of the first line of the title is in italic script.
Below, another example with the inscription George and Isabella Beatty. Thanks to Norman Lowe for the following information: George Beatty (a mason, presumably stonemason) and Isabella Archbold had the following children in Chatton Northumberland – William 1811/12, Henry 1817 and six more younger ones through to 1833, but possibly some older ones too. Isabella was born in 1785 so could have been married from 1801 onwards.
On this version the word Sunderland is in block capitals. The small boat to the right is black inside. The bricks on the underside of the bridge are still reflected in the water.
This is Baker's bridge 1, here shown with coloured over-enamels, c1820. It is similar to the transfer above, except there is a building at the top left of the transfer, and the bricks on the underside of the bridge are no longer reflected in the water.
This unrecorded view appears to be composed with elements of the transfer above. However, the sail boat on the right is moving in the opposite direction. This large mug has a frog, but its upper half is missing.
