Shot at St Saviour’s Dock amongst the crowded quay sides of “Shad Thames“, an area which is packed full, almost half a mile deep, with huge multi-floor warehouses which have stood there since 1870. This area was once one of the busiest quays in London, serving independent companies that could not dock in the then monopolised quays on the Isle of Dogs (now called Docklands).
The last of these warehouses closed in the mid 1970’s leaving the whole area as a dark, disused and scarcely visited warren of dirt and crime. Of course who wanted to live in an industrial estate with roads so narrow and buildings so high that light scarcely reaches the street? Well, years on, warehouses and narrow cobbled streets are COOL and London as it is, cool equals expensive and so, this area now houses some of the most expensive flats in South East London.
