Waiting shelter at tram terminus. Tram Route 32 was abandoned in the mid thirties in favour of bus 137 which duplicated its route.

Entrance to Belgrave Dock. The dock was filled in after WWII in preparation for the construction of Churchill Gardens Estate but a break in the continuity of the embankment wall still (2013) shows the dock entrance. Some maps give the name Johnsons Dock or Pimlico Wharf.

LCC 1934 map labels this building as Norway Wharf.

A 1937 LCC map labels this "Mex Wharf". Earlier maps show Thames Bank Distillery or include the names of its owners: [Octavius] Smith's Distillery, Cook's Distillery. Some maps including Stanford's of 1862 - 1871 mislabel this as Mill Bank Distillery. That was further downstream.

Houses of Thames Parade in Grosvenor Road. Built by John Johnson before he sold his development interest in Pimlico to Thomas Cubitt. Some web listings refer to "Thomas Parade". This may be a misreading from maps. Cross' 1835 map gives "Thames Parade".

A pair of concrete blocks in the run of the embankment railings and a hump in the road level still (2013) indicate the location of this former dock entrance.

Block 1 of Peabody Close was badly damaged by a V1 bomb in 1944. It was replaced by a less grand rebuild in the 1950s. The imposing river facade of the original block can be guessed at by viewing blocks 2 and 3 from the end of Turpentine Lane.

Turpentine Lane. The double right-angle kink of the lane is visible in maps of the late 18th century where it skirts the "White Lead Works" of that time. The same kink now runs behind some fine Cubitt-development houses. Turpentine Lane is a whole storey lower than adjacent streets, perhaps indicating its age.

Grosvenor Steps. Still (2013) present behind a locked gate but wouldn't pass an H&S inspection.

Formerly the Victorian boiler house for the steam pumps of the Southwark and Vauxhall Water Company which supplied water to surrounding areas and as far away as Brixton. The filter beds and reservoirs of the company occupied the areas upon which Battersea Power Station was constructed.
