The Royal Naval College before Canary Wharf

Just by way of a change - this is a picture I took in the early 1980s looking down from the Royal Observatory towards Queen Anne's Palace, behind which is the Royal Naval College, Greenwich. Today, you're looking at a bunch of high rise buildings, so I'm rather sentimental about this view, which takes me back to childhood.

  1. I was the lead planning solicitor on the Canary Wharf planning applications. I'll show you the photos we did for the applications one day (including the banana walls).

  2. I sympathise. It is a lovely view and like so many others has been wiped off the face of the map by so-called progress.

  3. I liked it so much, I've made it available for sale as a poster. See the new post.
