This Dutch map from the Maritime Museum collection shows the impact of the Great Fire of London, which raged through the city in early September 1666. Made in the Netherlands in the middle of the Anglo-Dutch Wars, the map demonstrates to a Dutch audience the weakened state of England following the destruction of the capital city.
The image of London in flames, with the destroyed old city shown against the billowing smoke, the weeping oarsman, and the stream of people leaving the capital all reinforce the sense of catastrophe.
