Full image caption

Thames Riverscape showing Hutchings Wharf, named after Alexander & John Hutchings who established a factory on the site between 1859 and 1886 from the Lenanton's Wharf to Atlas Chemical Works section of the north bank of the Thames. Part of a factory can be seen, Levy Brothers and Knowles Ltd, manufacturers of bags and sacks, from 1900- 1945.
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.
