My friend Alan directed me to this photo, which dates from 1920. It was originally posted here, in a larger size. Tower Bridge is just off the bottom of the picture. The large number of barges is something that I remember. It was possible to board them, and even go down inside them. The roofs of all the warehouses behind the wharves are clearly visible. The Pool was still “London’s Larder” at that time.
