This view records the magnificent flotilla of barges that sailed to Westminster to commemorate Sir Henry Tulse being sworn in as Lord Mayor of London. In the background is the sprawling palace of Whitehall, Charles II's principal residence in London. Crowds are gathered on the roof outside the Queen's Withdrawing Room. New apartments were added for Charles II, including a State Bedchamber overlooking the river.
