Rotherhithe Street, the view is looking south-west from the Thames. The chimneys in the background are the Rotherhithe Gas Works. Would this be the Surrey Lock bridge..png

These two adjacent wharves lay close to the Surrey Docks and like, them, specialised in handling and storing timber. On 7th/8th September 1940, the first major raid on London, these two wharves were both hit, a conflagration engulfing them and their timber stockpiles.

Picture states Fanards Wharf. I have not been able to find Fanards Wharf, so think it may mean Farrand’s Wharf. :?: If this is correct part of this building was a Granary.
