That tower looks like the Sailors Home in Canning Place

This looks a lot like the Overhead Station, but it's too far north I'd guess

Still working on this. The Anglican Cathedral Lady Chapel was the first to be completed in 1910. The tower was finished by 1942.
The station looks pretty clean in comparison to some of the other stations on the same line, which is odd.The buildings on the left hand side of one of the pics, showing above the docks don't look like warehouses to me(maybe wrong) and they seem to be positioned as if they are on the opposite side of the road and continuing up a side road, with Wapping station being on a slight bend.The panoramic view including the possible hydraulic tower of James Street Station and the Cathedral somehow seem to be squashed in but looking at old maps ,can sometimes get confusing with dimenssions.
Can anyone add or take away anything here?

This is the old Cutom House station on the Overhead. Later it's name changed to Canning Station. This should be the one in the photo

If it was Canning Dock, wouldn't we be able to see the Custom House? Maybe it had gone by the time this pic was taken, not sure.

Bert your link says Customs House was bombed in 1940. We have Cathedral tower completed by 1942 but also from Canning I don't think a view of the Catheral and station would have been possible with such close proximity to James Street.Just guessing, I guess.

The Custom House came down after the war. It was bombed, but only superficial damage. I think it would have gone by the time of the photo Granny

Could be right Pablo. Hasn't anyone got a copy of the Overhead Railway DVD....? That could probably throw a bit more light on the subject.

Thought St Georges Dock was where the Liver Building is , the church behind is ST Nicks, the tower is James Strasse station ,the buildings in front is the Goree.

Hats off to you Pablo and Bert. Sailors home Canning place, I can see it now and the angle from Canning Dock to incorporate the Cathedral. Got maps all over the place. On my knee,on my head, on the floor.

Bert should have put 10d to win.

Think my best idea is to join Pinz back behind the woodwork.
