PICKLE HERRING STREET.

Postby kiwi » Sat Mar 04, 2017 8:06 am

Pickle Herring Street in the 1947 photo is the street winding through the warehouses, it had been here for many years but has now disappeared along with all the warehouses lining this stretch of the Thames in the redevelopment of this area of the south bank for City Hall (the building that appears to lean backwards in the 2015 photo), the home of the Mayor of London and the Greater London Authority, along with the public open space created up to Tower Bridge.

I live in Toronto (ex Camberwell guy). One thing we do not have here is wonderful street names like this. I get a kick out of so many great street names in London. Frying Pan alley and so on
