EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to 1936, offering a glimpse into the industrial landscape of Lambeth, Greater London. Standing tall and proud is the iconic Lambeth Shot Tower, a testament to architectural brilliance. Designed by David Ridall Roper in 1826 for Thomas Maltby & Co. , this Georgian marvel was operated by Walkers, Parker & Co at the time of this photograph. The shot tower's imposing presence dominates the scene as it overlooks the River Thames. Its purpose? The production of lead shots used in various industries during that era. However, progress often comes with sacrifice, and sadly, this historic structure met its fate in 1962 when it was demolished to make way for the Queen Elizabeth Hall. Adding another layer of historical significance to this image is the partial demolition of Waterloo Bridge on the left side. This road bridge designed by John Rennie opened its gates to commuters in 1817 but now stands as a symbol of change amidst an ever-evolving cityscape. Charles William Prickett skillfully captures not only these architectural wonders but also transports us through time with his lens. As we gaze upon this snapshot from history, we are reminded of London's rich industrial heritage and how each passing era leaves its mark on our beloved city's skyline.
