In the 1970’s-80s large swathes of the docklands area was left as wasteland following the development of container cargo trade – and as such there are quite a lot of photos of the area showing the wastelands left over from the demolition of buildings and warehouses.
In a way, I quite like the desolation and slightly mourn its passing.
Therefore, I was quite delighted to see a building demolished right next to Tower Bridge, and while surrounded by solid fencing, there is a tiny gap you can just about fit a camera through to get some photos.
It’s quite rare to get photo opportunities like this now – especially with the rise of health & safety making it difficult to (ahem) enter the building sites.
Google Maps location if you want to poke your camera through the gaps.
