Watkins Book Binding factory on Scarsdale Road
View from rear of properties on Chumleigh Street, Peckham, looking south east towards Scarsdale Road. The buildings on the left are part of the Watkins's Book Binding Factory complex. 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. A flatbed trailer marked Pugh & Co. can be seen at the left of the image. The foreground is overgrown and generally neglected. An Austin/Morris FG k100 truck can be seen at the centre of the image. An unidentified commercial vehicle is facing out of the yard onto Scarsdale Road. Several unidentified commercial vehicles can be seen in the background on Scarsdale Road. On the far side of Scarsdale Road are prefabricated buildings - possibly residential. All land and buildings in the image were cleared in the 1970s to make way for the creation of Burgess Park.
