St. George-in-the-East
St. George-in-the-East
A moody picture of the Nicholas Hawksmoor church on a damp winter's day in Wapping. In one of the most densely-populated and ever-changing areas of East London, this church, which dates from the early 18th century, survived the wartime bombing by Germany - but only just. The interior was rebuilt after being completely destroyed. Hawksmoor was a pupil in the office of Sir Christopher Wren and his East End churches are considered classics of the period.
