The Dockers Shelter, Redriff Road, Rotherhithe Now used as a large bus shelter, this was historically the place where dock workers would wait to find casual piece work. It says Redriff Road my memory is saying Redriff Way, anyone know??

Lift bridge, Redriff Road, Rotherhithe.
This bridge was originally built in 1949 and used at Deptford Creek before being moved
here to what was Surrey Docks in 1959.
The road has since been diverted the lifting bridge is still in place today, part of the area's history, but no longer carries the road. The road has been diverted over a new fixed bridge alongside.
