|Description: Many of Eager's photographs vividly capture working-class life among the riverside communities of east London. This portrait is among his most striking images. It shows the Edwards family formally posed at Falcon Wharf at Bankside. Wharves such as this one, to the west of London Bridge, generally serviced lighters and barges bringing in goods unloaded from ships in the Pool or the docks further downstream.|
