Shad Thames 3

Posted by
AG (London, United Kingdom) on 27 February 2008 in Documentary & Street.

The same cobbled street as the last two days with the converted warehouses to either side.

Notice the cast iron bridges across the street : these were part of the original structure and were used to convey kegs and barrows of spices, wheat and tea across from one side to the other at the upper levels. Today, they are used as balconies for the apartments, each one owning to the half-way mark . . although one wealthy resident has purchased opposing apartments and uses the bridge to get from one to the other . . . and this at prices up to around £2 million / US$4 million.
