|Description: Known as the 'larder of London' because of its enormous trade in foodstuffs, mainly dairy and meat products and tea and coffee, the Hay's Wharf group covered most of the south bank between London Bridge and Tower Bridge. Today, the barges have long disappeared and the central area of Hay's has now been incorporated into the Hay's Galleria residential and retail complex.|
