EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph, titled "Clink Wharf Ltd., Clink Street, St Mary Overy's Dock, Southwark, London," captures the industrial spirit of the River Thames in the 1950s. Taken by renowned photographer Eric de Mare, the image offers a glimpse into a bygone era when the riverbanks were lined with imposing wharves. The photograph features the facade of Clink Wharf Limited, a warehouse nestled along the south bank of the Thames. The building's rustic brickwork, worn by the passage of time, stands in stark contrast to the pristine, blue waters of the river. The narrow street leading up to the wharf is almost swallowed up by the vastness of the structure, emphasizing the scale of the industrial architecture. The image transports us back to a time when the Thames was a bustling hub of activity, with cargo ships and barges regularly docking at the wharves. The sound of cranes lifting heavy loads, the clanging of metal, and the hustle and bustle of workers loading and unloading goods would have filled the air. The photograph also highlights the rich history of the area, with the ruins of the medieval Clink Prison visible in the background. The prison, infamous for its brutal treatment of prisoners, was once a notorious part of London's criminal underworld. This photograph is a testament to the past, offering a unique perspective on the industrial heritage of London's Southwark district. Eric de Mare's masterful composition and use of light and shadow bring the scene to life, making it a must-have for anyone interested in the history of the city or industrial photography.
