Once the plans for the development of The Regent’s Canal linking Paddington to Limehouse had been agreed an act of Parliament in July 1812 set things in motion. By 1816 it had opened up for traffic to Camden Town but there was still some high ground to get past. Money had to be borrowed from the Exchequer who loaned £200,000. The Islington tunnel was dug and opened on 1 August 182. The first boats from Manchester used the 960 yard tunnel as part of the opening ceremony, passing through City Road Lock and unloading at City Road Basin. They then immediately set off back to the north of England. This black and white portrait (vertical) format print shows a canal boat entering the City Road lock from the eastern end.
