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.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
