River Thames from Tripcock Ness on New Year's Day 2019
This view looks upriver towards Woolwich as the sun goes down on the first day of 2019. It was just off Tripcock Ness that the pleasure steamer Princess Alice sank on the evening of Tuesday 3rd September 1878 in the greatest tragedy ever seen on the Thames. It had been sliced in two by the Bywell Castle, a coal ship. Only 69 out of the 700 passengers survived. Thousands of people attended the mass funeral of 120 of the victims held at Woolwich Old Cemetery on Monday 9th September - see Link
