The London Warehouse

This picture shows the London Warehouse which was built on Packhouse Quay in 1817.

It was situated between the present Waterfront pub and the Sam Newsom Centre. After the dock was opened in the 1880’s the river trade fell off and the warehouse was demolished (pictured below) in about 1950.

  1. The old derrick crane in front of the warehouse still stood on the quay side well into the 60s and its base into the 80s,,,,
