Watkins Book Binding factory on Scarsdale Road
View from Scarsdale Road, Peckham, looking north into a yard of the Watkins's Book Binding Factory complex of buildings. The Watkins's Book Binding Factory was enclosed within the block comprising Cowan Street, Jardin Street, Scarsdale Road and Chumleigh Street. Also known as Watkins Bible Factory, it was operated by Watkins, Watkins & Co. The front of a Ford Cortina Mark I can be seen at the lower left of the image. The rear of houses on Chumleigh Street can also be seen on the left of the image. A Bedford TK tractor unit can be seen at the centre left. A chalkboard with "359 A" written on it is on the ground behind the Bedford. An unidentified commercial vehicle, mostly obscured by corrugated iron fencing, can be seen just right of the centre of the image and alongside industrial buildings. All land and buildings in the image were cleared in the 1970s to make way for the creation of Burgess Park.
