Well, only a day late for Paula’s Thursday’s Special! As the theme is Traces of the Past, this is a subject close to my heart.
Here are some traces of London’s Victorian Industrial past, few of which can be found now. Most of which are abandoned and rotting away, or earmarked for redevelopment. These are from a couple of recent walks in London.
The asbestos removal team are in Millenium Mills (above), and this building will soon be redeveloped as luxury flats – glad I saw it before the old decaying facade was gone forever.
Below is part of the steadily decaying Tate Institute (founded by Sir Henry Tate, for workers at the sugar factory nearby).
The next two images are from London’s East End
