EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph, titled CC72_01834, captures the bustling Fish Wharf at Billingsgate Market as it appeared in 1880. Taken from London Bridge, the viewer gazes down the majestic Thames, the waterway that has been a lifeline to London for centuries. In the foreground to the left, the old Billingsgate Market comes into focus, a maze of wooden structures where fish vendors and seafarers once gathered. The Tower of London, a historic symbol of the city's power and resilience, stands proudly in the distance. The towering structure, with its iconic White Tower, has witnessed the rise and fall of empires, and continues to be a beacon of London's rich history. This scene, captured by renowned Victorian photographer Henry Taunt, offers a glimpse into the past. The Fish Wharf at Billingsgate Market was the primary destination for fishing vessels to unload and moor. The Custom House, located next door, was where goods were inspected and duties were paid. The air was filled with the pungent aroma of fish, the sound of bustling activity, and the call of the seagulls. The photograph transports us back in time, allowing us to imagine the sights, sounds, and smells of this vibrant and bustling part of London's history. The ships, with their sails full and masts tall, add to the sense of movement and energy that characterized the Fish Wharf. The Victorian era, with its intricate details and attention to craftsmanship, is beautifully captured in the intricately designed boats and the ornate architecture of the buildings. This photograph is a testament to the rich maritime history of London and the vital role that the Thames played in shaping the city we know today.
