|Description: The Wandsworth and District Gas Company's new collier SS 'Ewell' moving down river towards Southwark Bridge. This is one of a series of photographs taken on 22 September 1926, probably on her maiden voyage.
She is approaching the second Southwark Bridge, built in 1912-21 to the designs of Mott and Hay. This replaced John Rennie's bridge of 1819.|
