Now I have rather neglected Greenwich and yet it was and is one of my favourite places.
I worked for a while at a camping shop on the road into Greenwich and spent three summer vacations working at a food factory on the river just minutes away from the Cutty Sark Park, which in turn was a place I remember fondly.
This is the Hospital from a card dated 1902
So for me as much as I am impressed by the buildings it is the humble working barges that I find fascinating.
Not of course that I am going to to romanticise working on the river. It was hard dangerous and at times very unpleasant.
Anyone who has been caught in a chill wind blowing off the river in the depths of winter will know what I mean.
