The Streetmuseum App 2.0 from the Museum of London gives the user a chance to explore how locations across the capital looked in times gone by. Hundreds of images are visible through the app, showcasing London’s history, from the Great Fire of 1666 through to the Swinging Sixties.
From the west side of Tower Bridge, George Davison Reid composed this photo looking out across the Upper Pool circa 1930. This image is atypical of Reid’s work, being a posed shot. The children appeared in other photos at different riverside locations. It has been suggested that some of the girls could be Reid’s daughters.
