Did you know?
Downing’s Road is what they call river moorings.
Downing’s Roads are one of the oldest surviving river moorings in London. Since at least the first half of the 19th Century, the moorings have been used to accommodate a variety of craft, both permanently moored and mobile
Dockers had to wear overalls without pockets. When No. 1 Warehouse first opened, dock workers had to wear special pocket less garments to stop them pilfering goods.

Treading in tea at Butler's Wharf, c1909-1921. Butler's Wharf occupied most of the riverfront downstream from Tower Bridge to St. Saviour's Dock. Completed in 1873, it was once the largest warehouse complex on the Thames. Butler's Wharf handled general cargoes, mainly foodstuffs such as tea, meat and fruit.

Quest, a low-powered, schooner-rigged steamship that sailed from 1917 until sinking in 1962, is best known as the polar exploration vessel of the Shackleton–Rowett Expedition of 1921-1922. It was aboard this vessel that Sir Ernest Shackleton died on 5 January 1922 while the vessel was in harbour in South Georgia On 5 May 1962, while on a seal-hunting expedition, Quest was holed by ice and sank off the north coast of Labrador. The crew were saved.
