Superficially, this view (taken from the old lift bridge in summer 1993) hasn't changed a lot in the intervening years. However, the warehouses are now enjoying a new lease of life as apartment blocks, whereas here they're derelict. The eagle eyed among you may spot a Citroen Dyane parked up on the left of the shot, and you don't see too many of those around these days either!
