Lost Woolwich .......... no 2

 Now of all the places I knew in my youth I have to say Woolwich is one of those that has been has undergone some of the most radical change.

So much so that big chunks of it I have difficulty recognising.

The Arsenal, Powis Street and even the old Pie and Mash shop were as familiar to me as they were to generations of people who grew up in Woolwich and are now just distant memories.

So with that in mind I have returned to images of a time before now.

This one is of Wellington Street in 1905, and serves to remind us of just how many were employed behind its gates
