Woolwich Power Station in 1960
First built at the end of Victoria's reign on the site of a ship repair yard, it was enlarged and modified several times during its life. During construction work in 1912, the timbers of a Tudor warship were discovered. They were said to be from "Sovereign", King Henry VII's ship of 1488. The station closed down in 1978. This early morning picture was taken from a southbound ferry.
