Woolwich January 1970
Beresford Square, Woolwich. In wet weather, January 1970. A typical scene of the time, with the policeman directing the rush hour traffic. Practically everything in the picture has gone. The road, cobbles, toilets, tram shelter, power station, along with the RTs. The road is now the other side of the gates, they are now in preservation in the square after being left derelict for many years. Somehow they don't look so important as they did when guarding the Royal Arsenal. The first bus is…
Woolwich Market, Beresford Square. A look will show where the tram tracks have been tarmacked over, with a bit still showing. A bus is just heading in to Plumstead Road. June 1968.
