Title:
Thames Riverscape showing 1937 Mellish's Wharf and Fenner's Wharf; 1937
Description:
Thames Riverscape showing Mellish's Wharf and Fenner's Wharf from the Atlas Chemical Works to Le Bas Wharf section of the north bank of the Thames. In 1937 the Port of London Authority commissioned Avery Illustrations to document both banks of the Thames between London Bridge and Greenwich/Island Gardens. The result was a total of 276 black & white photographic prints, 124 for the North Bank and 132 for the South Bank. Joined together the prints form 2 panoramas that depict the busy working warehouses, factories, ships, tugs and barges that inhabited the banks of the Thames.
