1953 photo, it was possible to look straight along Bankside and see the tower of Southwark Cathedral from the bridge. Today, this is not possible as the two new buildings obscure the view having been built over the original road (also Southwark Cathedral is hard to see due to the taller buildings directly behind). Horseshoe Alley is to the right (no longer there) and leading down to the river is Horseshoe Alley Stairs.

The Bear Garden - Elizabethan Amphitheatre
The Bear Garden Elizabethan Amphitheatre served as both a theatre and a blood sports arena for bear-baiting and bull-baiting. It located on the Bankside in Southwark on the south was side of the Thames.
Opposite the City of London, where the Swan, Hope, Bull Ring and Globe Theatre had also been situated. The Bear Garden was originally built as a blood sport arena. Bear and Bull baiting were major spectator sports and there were several purpose-built arenas in this area specifically designed to house these events. Bear baiting had been introduced to England during the Medieval period of the 1200's - nearly every town in Elizabethan England boasted a Bull and Bear baiting ring.

Near to White Hind Alley. Probably disappeared when Blackfriars Bridge was built?
