It's not the Cutty Sark I am not sure but I think it may be Thames Street

The ship is a square rigger - the type which used to do the grain-run to and from Australia, right up until the '14-'18 war. This looks like a shot of Creek Street (now Creekside) whose houses backed onto the creek before they were demolished.

Thanks Anon for that info. You could well be right. I think Creekside was once called Slaughter House Lane as well.

Hi Andy, sorry bad of me just to shout out like that. The angle of the shot, seemed to remind me of the the Deptford Dry Dock just off Deptford Green. But having looked further, I think I've found it. It seems it's the S.V. Penang in the Britannia Dock, Deptford Ferry Road, Isle of Dogs. There's a blog piece here https://islandhistory.wordpress.com/2014/04/26/s-v-penang/

Aside, can I just say how much I love your blog!!!

Best wishes,

Bob.

Hey Bob,

Thanks for your great comment on my blog together with the information on the photo and link. I will now have a look at the link. It's always a pleasure to hear from intrested people who go one step further with their comments and information which after all helps me to expand my historical knowledge of Deptford. Please feel free to add any information, stories or photos you may have to the blog.

Best regards
Andy
