This 1983 photograph shows North Boat Quay (from South Boat Quay, near Ellenborough Market). There are many bumboats docked at the quay, with commercial buildings along the river bank. The road along the quay, which is also named North Boat Quay, has been turned into a pedestrian mall with the restoration and redevelopment of Clarke Quay in the 1990s. Title devised by Library staff.
