    Default Anybody know whats going on here?

    This scaffolding has been up for a long time now and there never seems to be anyone working there. I would like to record this area as it is now before any developers move in, but the scaffold spoils the shot.

    I agree with Kev, Omega, fantastic shot!!! That bit of scaffolding actually lends an air of surrealism to an otherwise balanced shot. I would like to think that they are restoring that portion of the warehouse. Hopefully we will discover that is what is happening.

    I worked in the Wapping warehouses in summer 1966 for the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board and got some shots of the warehouses as they looked then as well as a close-up photograph of a crane or gantry similar to the one that you can see on the left side of your photograph, directly under the scaffolding. One of these days I will get my 35mm slides digitised so everyone can see them.

    Omega, I take it we are looking at one of the nothern docks. Could you tell us which one it is?
