The Adelphi Wharf. General view of the Coal Wharf immediately east of the Adelphi buildings is shown against backdrop from left to right of Westminster, York waterworks and the Adelphi. Coal heavers are unloading lighters, which have transported coal from collier wharves at Wapping, and loading wagons which are then drawn under the Adelphi arches to the Strand. In the foreground women are scavenging for coal which has dropped off lighters.
