A rare image of Greenwich Wharves in the 1930s. The view looks westwards from the east side of the Greenwich Peninsula towards the old gas works, now the site of the Dome. The scene is is eerily devoid of figures and nature, both highly atmospheric and sterile. Yet at the same time it provides a detailed visual record of the industrial Greenwich Landscape before its ultimate decline. Cranes cut the sky at different degrees, chimneys provide the verticals.
