London Photo Walks - London's Pool

London's Pool

Tower Bridge - 2017

The Pool of London hosted ships bringing a multitude into the City for years. Today, all that remains of the trade, which disappeared in the 1960s due to containerisation, are the red brick wharves that line the Thames just beyond Tower Bridge and a handful of other buildings. Now redeveloped into housing and restaurants new life has been breathed into these old warehouses and those that disappeared completely have been replaced by shiny new 21st century office blocks.

Sitting in the heart of it all is Tower Bridge, the Victorians' answer to congestion across London Bridge whilst maintaining access to the Upper Pool area. For a photographer this is the perfect focal point as one of London's best known landmarks. The leading lines of the wharf lights and railings take the viewer straight in to this gothic masterpiece and the skyscrapers of the City beyond.
