where ive been working this week
« on: May 30, 2008, 04:47 PM »
heres a photo of less than one third of surrey quays dock in the thames in london, looking towards canary wharfe

ive been doing some maintenance at the housing in swedish quays, the docks ceased to function in the 1960/70s




until yesterday i didnt know the history of the dock and its relevance to carpentry


it was at one time called greenland dock, when whaling died out it became THE dock for timber imports from the baltic, russia (before communism) and from america

when it was built it was the largest wet dock in the world and could take cunard liners



Bromley, Kent. UK
