Greenmoor Wharf, Bankside. From Reid's Views of Westminster and London. George Davison Reid produced 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 the barges by chutes and hydraulic cranes. Once laden, the barges would head downriver to the estuary. Reid photographed activity along the banks of the River Thames extensively during the late 1920s and early 1930s.
