Friday Hill, Erith, c. 1925
Looking down Friday Hill (now Erith Road) with the Vickers Factories in the distance.
The Nordenfeldt Tavern is seen on the corner at the bottom of the hill. The pub was designed to serve employees of the adjacent and large Maxim Nordenfeldt Gun and Ammunition Company.
Its nickname the 'Pom Pom' is a reference to the 1899 Maxim automatic quick firing gun.
