Yard Office

Inscription

Yard Office
This little building is one of the few which survive from the days of the Surrey Commercial Dock Co. It was erected in 1902 when the Greenland Dock was doubled in length. Nobody is sure what it was used for.

Doesn't left-justification on a plaque look odd?

Site: Yard Office (1 memorial)

SE16, Rope Street

Above the door is a stone announcing the date of construction "1902", though the bricked up windows now rather ruin the appearance. From a distance the modern block behind gives this sad little hut the look of a doll's house.
