Hi, if you visit the Local Studies Library at the Borough High Street, not only will you be able to look through the hundreds of photos of Southwark & Bermondsey, you will also be able to request photocopies of them, for a small charge.

Many thanks, you did send me a photo of Wolsely buildings once which was very nice,
We cannot get to the library we live in E.Sussex.
We were born in Bermondsey in 1927 and we moved in 1970 to Camber Sands
and now have retired to Northiam were we have been for the last 20 years
much appreciate the help you have given in the past.
Thanks Carol.

I hope this may be of help to anyone looking for old photos of London and other areas of the U.K

Please accept my applogies if this is post is classed as promotion of my site, but I thought that it may be of help

Best wishes,
