Canaletto. London: Westminster Bridge from the North on Lord Mayor's Day.

London: Westminster Bridge from the North on Lord Mayor's Day. The celebrations accompanied the appointment of the new Lord Mayor of London. On the painting the Largest City Barge is shown taking the Mayor to Westminster Hall, by the abbey at the right, where he will be sworn in. Some barges are firing solutes to honor the Mayor.
