Crosby Row Long Lane (Yesterday & Today)

Lets move over to Long Lane and Crosby Row where we have a picture from 100 years looking into Crosby Row from Long Lane, which shows how it was with St Hughs Church appearing through the fog.

In the second picture we see that the top of the Church has gone and the area is overlooked by the Shard.

The last picture shows the Church has been demolished and the whole area is dominated by the height of the Shard.

One more for today. This is a picture of the Hamilton square buildings from within the Crosby Row flats . Taken in the late 60s this shows the crane of the Guys Tower at the top and through the trees the old London Bridge Tower building which has just been demolished. The old school building (which is still there) is just to the right out of the shot, and the wall is still there.
