13 May 2015 • Wooden canopies over four doorways on the north side of Albury Street. Originally called Union Street, it runs east off Deptford High Street near the norther end. These beautifully carved decorations were placed over the doorways of a terrace of houses dating from the 18th century and used mainly as residences by admirals living near the Royal Naval Dockyard.

21 February 2009 • A long zoom view looking east from the north side of Oxford Street. In the distance are the upper floors of Centre Point photographed with an Art Deco figure on the outside of a large building which is now in use as a shopping mall called The Plaza. The building at 120 Oxford Street was completed in the 1920s as a department store for Bourne and Hollingsworth. After it closed it was converted to a shopping centre in 1987.
