Borough Market Junction - the notorious bottle neck on the approach to Cannon Street, Holborn Viaduct and Charing Cross Stations of the South Eastern and Chatham Railway. In 2013 it is being widened with new bridge over the market: a job that should have been done by the Southern Railway as long ago as 1924, or by the British Railways Modernisation Plan in 1955, or by Beeching after 1963 his Reshaping of Britain's Railways Report, but has only been carried out as part of the second shot at Thameslink. How many hours of delays at this bottleneck have added to the cost of operating this piece of line over nearly a century since it first became a problem. Cost to both the railway and its passengers. This inertia to meet problems of growth and change, as with the demise of the docks (see another tag), has all added to the decline of much of the effective and efficient economy in post-imperial Britain, while other sections of the economy (for example bank) streaked head.

Cargo being transferred to barges as well as to warehouses. The barges would carry cargo up river to places like Brentford Dock EPW006188 and EPW001670 where it would be transferred again for forwarding by rail. It was one of the labour intensive and therefore costly operational practices that did so much to cause the demise of the Port of London due to lack of adaptation to new cargo handling methods in the 1960s while places like Rotterdam forged ahead with investment and change. The barges also supplied many riverside industries in such places as Wandsworth and Fulham, industries that relied on the river for there imported raw materials. Some of these industrial buildings survey today (2013) converted into apartments, where they have not been demolished in favour of new residential building. Thus the linear industrial zone through the centre of London westwards from the Docks has disappeared to be replaced by a zone of up-market housing.

London Bridge was the limited of navigation for nearly all ocean going shipping. West of London Bridge the only sea going vessels were the colliers with mast and funnels that could be lowered to go under the fixed bridges, en route to power stations such as Battersea.

St. Peter's Church



This church was built on ground leased from the Bishop of Winchester by Messrs. Potts, the vinegar distillers, and given by the latter for the purpose. It was consecrated by the Bishop of Winchester on 7th November, 1839. The building was designed by Christopher Edmonds, surveyor to the Clink Paving Commissioners, and was described at the time of its erection as "a handsome, though not very richly adorned, specimen of Gothic architecture; … built of gray bricks, with stone mouldings, window frames, etc." It had sittings for about 1,200 persons. (ref. 198) It was entirely destroyed by enemy action in 1940.
