Tooley Street

Engraving of the demolition of St Olave's Church Tooley Street.

Only the turret was presverved and is now a Grade II listed building. It can be found in the south east corner of Tanner Street recreation ground

It was adapted for use as a water drinking fountain but is now disused.

By the look of today's picture it is not only disused but also abused with Graffiti.

A workman produces a batch of policeman's helmets at a workshop in Tooley Street, Southwark, 7th April 1930. I think this is possibly Hobsons (Hat) Factory.?

Picture of one of the two Tooley Street Post Offices around 1960. I have been trying to place where in Tooley Street it was and according to the map number 61 was between Hays Lane and Battle Bridge Lane so todays picture is the area where I think it was.

Specifically, it was this bay:,-0.0842606,3a,30y,31.14h,84.84t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s_lovCrYtz2wLK031VxLjTw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1?hl=en
