Description: The Southern Terminus of the Woolwich Ferry, showing one of the huge loading ramps linking the road to the boats. On the left is the entrance for foot passengers, while on the right is the main entrance for vehicles. The ramps are large enough to allow the heaviest lorries to drive onto the boats. The concrete tower houses the lifting gear for the ramps.
