Spirit Quay in Wapping. Now flanked by modern housing, this quay would once have been part of a networks of channels and docks which occupied this part of East London.

The docks were very close to the centre of London. In the background. Tower Bridge is visible along with the "Shard" office tower which was being built when this photo was taken.
