Cockle & Co, Bermondsey Mesh and Wireworks, moved to 109 Tanner St in 1903, trading at this location until 1919. Wire work was used for ornamental & utilitarian purposes: aviaries, trellises & meat-safes.

SARSONS VINEGAR.

SARSONS 2.jpg
Until the early 20th century Tanner St was the home of the Sarsons Vinegar factory.
The Sarson's Vinegar factory was situated in Tanner Street in Bermondsey, on the southern approach to Tower Bridge, where you could smell the aroma of the vinegar., In 1932 the company merged with other British vinegar producers to form British Vinegars Ltd.
In 1929, Crosse & Blackwell acquired both Champion & Slee and Sarson’s and it’s likely that the works in Tower Bridge Road acquired the name of Sarsons at that time, or perhaps a few years later when both companies, along with other vinegar makers, became part of British Vinegars which went through further changes of ownership during the 20th century.

Sarsons Vinegar factory in Tower Bridge Road was one of the last, if not the last, of the great Bermondsey food processing factories to cease production. It closed in 1992 and has been converted into a mixed-use complex of apartments and offices.
The mixed-use development, that combines the original brick buildings with steel and glass walkways, was completed in 2006 and renamed Maltings Place.
In 2012 the brand was acquired by Mizkan, a large Japanese food conglomerate .

Bermondsey Workhouse -Tanner Street Formerly Russell Street

A workhouse was approved in 1746 by The Board Of Guardians for the area and was errected in 1791 in Russell Street now known as Tanner Street
There seems to be a lack of photographic evidence of the building

Tanner Street

With all the changes taking place in the Tanner Street and Riley Road area - today we have a picture - courtesy of "tingle" - of the Wyatt & Company Tin Plate Works, which stood opposite the Riley Road School in Tanner Street.

Like others, I can remember looking down from the upper floors of the school building, at the women at work in this factory, and they would wave at us through the windows.

hi freddy, My Mum worked at Wyatts tin box factory for years. I remember her getting madeup to go on the yearly beano s . Her name was Dolly Ford . many times I remember her coming home from work with bandaged fingers because of cuts from the tins. Guy Leon used to give her a lift home from work most nights and I used to think they were having a affair, but she told me later in life they were just good friends.!!!! I think I have some photos of those Beano's I will see if I can sort them out.
