Next meeting of Greenwich Industrial History society
16th November Grieg's wharf by John Grieg.
Old Bakehouse, Bennett Park, SE3 7.30
Grieg's Wharf is not one of the famous Greenwich wharves - perhaps this talk will make it so!! It was on the Peninsula - and John will tell us all about it!!
In the post today:
Southwark and Lambeth Archaeological Society Newsletter. This includes (among many other things) a review of the Paul Sandby exhibition held in the Royal Academy earlier this year. Paul was the drawing instructor at Woolwich's Royal Military Academy from 1768 and much of his work in that period show local scenes, some of industrial interest.
Crossness Record - this describes a number of recent events - including the conversion of the engine house into a cosmestics factory for filming. It also includes the most amazing photograph of a Flusher from the 1950s. The site is restricted to visitors because of on going building work but the Trust hopes to make announcements on this soon.
