Three men stand by the rampart wearing broad-brimmed hats and one a cloak. They are looking out at the impressive vista that encompasses Old St. Paul’s Cathedral and the buildings of the Temple among London’s rooftops, many of which would be destroyed in the Great Fire two decades hence. To the right, the Thames is filled with small and large vessels, a reminder of the importance of London’s arterial waterway for travel and trade at this time.
