In 1937 the Port of London Authority commissioned Avery Illustrations to document both banks of the Thames between London Bridge and Greenwich/Island Gardens. The result was a total of 276 black & white photographic prints, 124 for the North Bank and 132 for the South Bank. Joined together the prints form 2 panoramas that depict the busy working warehouses, factories, ships, tugs and barges that inhabited the banks of the Thames.
