Sailing barge at Greenmoor Wharf, Bankside. George Davison Reid took this photo from a sailing barge moored in Greenmoor Wharf, Bankside. This was the site of Southwark Corporation's rubbish depot. Refuse, transported by horse and cart, was loaded into these barges by chutes and hydraulic cranes. Once the boat was laden, the skipper and mate would head downriver to the estuary.
