another ferry boad in mid Thames. The northern shore can be seen behind.
Between the two tower blocks a ships funnel can be seen in one of the docks.
A scene often seen by many living in the area was to see a ship at the
bottom of the garden. To the left the dock cranes and a line of red buses
await at the terminal.

approaches the Northern Terminal. St Mary's church can be seen on the skyline
with a new tower block nearby. Towards the left of the picture on the skyline
can be seen the water tower on Shooters Hill.

|Looking North with the
Ernest Bevin in mid stream. The northern skyline is filled with the cranes
of the Royal Docks, now all gone. People living in the area would often
find a ship at the bottom of the garden.
