The turning circle for Tommy Mann's narrow gauge railway might have been a bit tight! An interesting photo/makeover but yes, the Tower would have been a bit further "inland".

Nice photos Bert. I remember going on that. Only the once mind. It was like the Trans Siberian Railway to me.

I think that the chimney, was a clothing factory in Egerton Street. If my memory serves me right, it later became the Pink Elephant night club

Being demolished in the 70's, not by the clothes or funnels, so was it taken when it was being repaired in the 20's?

Wasn't one of the bridges replaced in the 60's after storm damage? Alexandra Screw Towing Co. still had steam tugs on the go then. It looks like one of them at the stage.
