Bangor Court off Long Lane, Southwark. The freehold of the land was owned by Friars School, Bangor, hence the name. This image is one of many which captures how some of the poorest people lived in Victorian London. Many came looking for work and ended up in crowded, squalid conditions

74-84 Selected Rug Co. Warehouse building with distinctive green bricks. This was part of the wire weavers Bedford, Steer, End & Co, founded on this site as the original Southwark Wire Works in 1824. In the 1890s they were workers of copper, brass, iron, steel, tinned, and galvanized wire of all kinds by steam power. By the 1950s they were making brush parts for dynamos as well as wire baskets sacks and containers of all sorts. The factory and buildings were reconfigured and partly rebuilt in the 1960s. The building is now being turned into flats?
