A sailing barge moored in Greenmoor Wharf, Bankside.
This was the site of Southwark Corporation's rubbish depot. Refuse,
transported by horse and cart, was loaded into these barges by chutes and
hydraulic cranes. Once the boat was laden, the skipper and mate would head
downriver to the estuary. 1920-1933

Old houses in Bankside, Southwark 1940. Because it once lay outside the City of London's authority the area became occupied by the bear baiting pits and playhouses as early as the mid-16th century

Bankside 1950, looking across to a fine Victorian pub. This is the Founder’s Arms. Behind the pub is the viaduct, approaching Blackfriars railway bridge, carrying the rail lines across the Thames into Blackfriars Station. A couple of the arches underneath the railway can just be seen to the left of the pub.

Although this part of Bankside has changed dramatically, it is relatively easy to place the location of the Founder's Arms. 2016..

Cardinal Cap Alley, Bankside. Ran between Bankside and Skin Market Place which was originally involved in the Tanning Trade, now where the Shakespeare’s Globe stands. Cardinal Cap Alley is still there nestled behind the Globe.

Henry Beaufort (c. 1375 – 11 April 1447) was a medieval English clergyman, Bishop of Winchester, a member of the royal house of Plantagenet, and a Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church, The Cardinal's Cap which was so-called because it had been owned by Henry Beaufort. If this is the case the house has been there a very long time considering he died in 1447. This looks like the same house in both pictures and possibly with the same lamp.

Clink Prison, originally used principally for religious prisoners, another of Southwark’s old and notorious institutions. Dating back to Mediaeval times this was a small prison owned by the Bishop of Winchester in the Liberty of the Clink. The building was burned down in 1780 and not rebuilt, number 1 Clink Street is a modern reconstruction and a museum.

A modern reconstruction of the Globe, named "Shakespeare's Globe", opened in 1997 approximately 750 feet (230 m) from the site of the original theatre. From 1909, the current Gielgud Theatre was called "Globe Theatre", until it was renamed (in honour of John Gielgud) in 1994. CARDINAL CAP ALLEY.
