Wapping from the water

I traveled by boat from Greenwich to Tower Bridge and despite the many changes, I believe that much of the stretch of the Thames between Limehouse and St Katherine’s Dock would look familiar to John Firmin or his sons were they to be transported to modern day London. For now, I will simply post a gallery of the stairs, docks, wharves and pubs. Each photo deserves a post of of its own – what was traded there? Did Charles Dickens down a pint at that pub? The stories are endless.
