View from Bell Water Gate

The Woolwich Ferry as seen from Bell Water Gate, Woolwich in June 1970. The whole of this area has now been swept away. The power station beyond the wall has been demolished and tuned into a car park. There is also an open area fronting the river.

Another view from Bell Water Gate. There is a ferry boat at each terminal. The tide is out quite a way in this picture. In the distance the cranes of the Royal Docks can be seen on the skyline.
June 1970.
