Greenwich Wharf, Greenwich Peninsula, c. 1910


Greenwich Wharf was adjacent to Pelton Road at the southern end of the Peninsula.

Geographically, it is not far from the site of R. W. Lucas's watercolour of the picturesque cottage at the end of Enderby's cable works, but presents a grimy contrast.

The white material is lime from the lime and cement works which had been on this site. Much of this wharf was taken into Lovell's Wharf which (in 2004) is about to be redeveloped.
