Fantastic picture Joe. It's lovely to see all these black and white photographs, so much more atmosphere than colour.

Rod.

Tower Bridge Road--- John Feaver Works

Picture from 1950 looking across Bermondsey Square towards Tower Bridge Road. The picture is dominated by the John Feaver Works in Tower Bridge Road which ran more or less from the corner of Grange Walk to Long Walk. Opposite the works was an Esso Filling Station The Grange Service Station which formed part of Bermondsey Square. The building to the left of the picture behind the lamp post is on the corner of Abbey Street and Tower Bridge Road and was in front of Abbey Buildings can anyone recall its name, Long Walk ran behind this building and rejoined Tower Bridge Road there was a small pub in the corner. On the google view in todays picture the site is still derelict but the road which used to be Long Walk remains Feavers was on the left where the houses are and the service station was on the right opposite the houses.

Tower Bridge Road 1931 from the Forum

The pictures are clips from the video on the Forum by Bermodseyboy

The quality of the pictures is superb when considering they were filmed some 80 years ago.
The pictures give a feel of what Tower Bridge Road must have been like some 80 years ago - a busy vibrant maket with stalls stretching from Noel Street to Bermondsey Street with the added curiosity of the bystanders being filmed.

Tower Bridge Road --Joyce's Pie and Mash

We hear so much about Manze on Bermondsey Boy and tend to forget Joyce's the other Pie and Mash shop that was in Tower Bridge Road but now Long Gone. But a favourite of Tommy Steele, it stood between Bermondsey Buildings and Compass Court on the other side of the road to Manze and near Aberdour Street
Sorry about picture quality as it was taken from the video but at least we have a record

Tower Bridge Road

Troc-ette Theatre, Tower Bridge Road in the 1930s, and an advert showing what you got for your money in those days, from 6d to 1/6d and Matinees at 6d and 9d what a bargain (if you had any money).

Tower Bride Road

176 Tower Bridge Road, is another building that should receive Grade II Listed Status due to it's history within the borough.

Before the opening of this building the Technical College for the City of London Leather Industry was resident at the Herolds Institute in conjunction with the Leather Sellers Company of the City of London, the LCC, and the Borough Polytechnic. In the original picture the name of the building can be seen across the building below the upper floors. Opened in 1909 by the Lord Mayor of London, this building became the Leather Sellers Technical College, instruction was given on the practical, theoretical and scientific side of the practice of leather manufacture. The College in its time contained the most up to date machinery in the world, which allowed students to carry out most processes in leather manufacture.

Today, the building is known as Osteopath House, and is the Head Office of the General Osteopath Council, who regulate the practice of Osteopathy in the UK.

From the old picture, we can see the building next door was the George Payne Coffee Warehouse in Tower Bridge Road.
