Britannia comes up the Thames

Harry Russell

By Margaret Day

This is another Harry Russell picture, I think the original was in St Katherines Church where we first saw it.

Me having been on the sea wall when the Royal Yacht came up the Thames, and my husband as a sea scout from Leigh On Sea, right out in the ray in his canoe.

I met my husband the following year and we talked about how wonderful it was to see Britannia come up the Thames, then years later we saw the painting (we were one of the last couples to have married at st Katherine's)

We went to Harry's house where we bought this from him, Harry added the info, he was such a nice man and offered us Coffee. He also gave us some photos of four other paintings  - These are featured in the Harry Russell Section.
