EDITORS COMMENTS
Cannon Wharf, Westminster, London: A Glimpse into Victorian London's Industrial Past This evocative photograph, captured by C T Thompson around 1856 (BB57_01541), offers a captivating glimpse into the industrial heart of Victorian London. The scene unfolds at Cannon Wharf, a coal loading dock situated off Cannon Row, downstream from Westminster Bridge. The area, now long gone, was swept away during the construction of the Victoria Embankment in the late 19th century. The image is bathed in the soft, ethereal light of a misty morning, with the cobblestone quay and the hulking coal wagons creating a stark contrast against the serene water. The coal trolleys or wagons, a common sight in London since the late 18th century, remain a testament to the relentless workforce that fueled the city's growth. The people in this photograph, bundled up against the cold and damp, add a human element to the industrial landscape. Their presence underscores the importance of the coal trade in London's daily life, as well as the arduous labor required to keep the city's industries running. This photograph, with its atmospheric mist and the timeless coal wagons, transports us back to a bygone era. It serves as a poignant reminder of the rich history that lies beneath the modern-day streets of Westminster, London.
