On the side of the former White Hart pub in Erith town centre is a fantastic mural depicting a scene from the end of the 19th century, and a vanished form of transport: a Thames Spritsail Barge.

Painted by artist Gary Drostle in Spring 2005, the mural cleverly uses the typical crimson-brown sails of moored Thames barges as a form of proscenium arch to frame its main subject: the barge 'Chance', sailing into Erith beneath a pink-blue Turneresque sky.
