Floating Dock, Rotherhithe, 1815.
Ship building and repairing were Rotherhithe's traditional industry, at least until the end of the 19th century, when ships outgrew the size of the Rotherhithe yards and docks. In the background can be seen the parish Church of St Mary the Virgin.

The entrance to the Surrey Commercial Docks in Rotherhithe. The masts of several ships can be seen in the background. The photograph was taken around 1907.

Fountain Dock, Bermondsey Wall East 1929. looking from the south east corner of the dock, towards the river and the direction of the City.

Bermondsey Wall East 2018, view taken from roughly the same viewpoint. Today there is a fountain in the centre of the green.
