George Adams - Recollections of changes in the Port of London.

George Adams - Recollections of changes in the Port of London.
© National Maritime Museum, London
Repro ID: H5790
Description: George compares the busy commercial river of the past with the quiet river of today. Where once there were hundreds of ships, barges, tugs and lighters, today only pleasure craft and a few rubbish barges can be seen on the water. The wharves and warehouses have been destroyed and replaced with apartments and shops.
