Dickens's London: in pictures

One of the earliest photographs recording a London industry, this picture is one of a series taken by Geoffrey Bevington, a leather merchant and tanner from Bermondsey. Bermondsey was the capital's leather processing centre, and these pictures were displayed at the Bevington and Sons' stand at the 1862 International Exhibition.
