|Description: The Surrey Commercial Docks were the only docks on the south side of the river. Apart from the Greenland Dock and East Country Dock, in which general cargo from many countries was unloaded, they were devoted to the handling and storage of timber and timber products. Goods unloaded at the docks were distributed around Britain by road, rail, canal and coastal steamer.|
