About the Book
Rotherhithe & Surrey Docks: 1975-1985 London Docklands 4 PDF ISBN 978-1-909363-12-0 When I took these pictures - a few in the 1970s but mainly in 1982 and 1984 this was an area in transition. The docks had closed finally in 1970, but redevelopment had been slow and interrupted by political change. Much of the old dock area was still recognisable but about to be radically transformed.
