Overview

Unlike the more bucolic scenes filmed higher up the Thames in pleasant towns like Windsor or Maidenhead, this film was taken in Rotherhithe and provides a glimpse into working life on the Thames. The river is heavily populated with a number of boats, of all shapes and sizes, with the warehouses of Rotherhithe visible in the background.
