taken 5 years ago, near to Greenwich, Great Britain

Anchor Iron Wharf
Anchor Iron Wharf
The inscription on the anchor sculpture tells how after a long history, one Charles Robinson moved his premises here in 1953 to what became known as Anchor Iron and Crowley's Wharf. The principal cargoes at the wharf were scrap iron, lead ingots, metal and glass. The Cutty Sark public house seen beyond is a full kilometre downstream from the historic ship of the same name.
