I’m revising the third book in the series – currently on my fourth draft.
Here are some pictures taken while collecting information for book 3. The photos below are an important location in the book. Old Swan Pier used to be here – you can still see the struts in the water and a bit of the entrance. In place of the new buildings would have been warehouses and wharves. It’s right next to London Bridge and Fishmongers Hall.
From the pier, you would have been able to see Tower Bridge (looking under London Bridge) and Pickfords Wharf opposite.
Here are some photos from the London Docklands Museum.
Some useful books:
Scenes from Gravesend – all will feature:
Some extracts from The Daily News – 1893 and 1896. Thanks to the British Library.
