West View of Cast Iron Bridge... (rectangular)
There are many variations of this transfer that appear in an oval frame with title around the outside (see right). However, this page catalogues the West View of the Cast Iron Bridge within a rectangular border. The rectangular transfer is listed as number 29 in the Appendix of bridge views in Baker.

The attribution of this transfer is based on the Seaham jug in the Sunderland Museum, which has a painted factory mark 'Walker & Co, Seaham Pottery 1847'. The earlier jug below has a Mariner's Compass transfer, that also appears on the museum jug.
The defining feature of this transfer is that, although rectangular, the top edge is loosely delineated by broken clouds.
