I recently came across a photo of this painting showing an eerie St Pauls, which I completed in the 1960's. I recall painting the view from somewhere around the Queenhithe stairs. The area has changed so dramatically now, can anyone identify the building that looks like a church to the left in the foreground?
Keen eyed Richard Dodson nailed it when he sent a link to this site; https://alondoninheritance.com/london-churches/the-lost-wharfs-of-upper-thames-street-and-st-benets-welsh-church/. Scroll down and you will see almost the exact same view and the author having similar difficulty until with patience he works out how the street pattern has changed!
