Memorial

High Tide - 1874 Thames flood level markers

Plaque: High Tide - 1874

Inscription

Variable high tides
March 30th 1874
Joseph Giles - Warden 

Site: Thames flood level markers (3 memorials)

SE10, High Bridge Wharf, Trinity Hospital

Reading left to right these plaques are:  Tide - 1874, Wall - 1817, Tide - 1928.   We think the organisation for which the Wardens worked is probably Trinity House.  The BBC has a good page about London floodings.
