Greenwich's position on the south bank of the River Thames as the gateway to London means it has long been an important place of maritime trade and industry. The home of royal palaces and naval establishments, as Greenwich grew it brought in huge numbers of people to live and work in the town, and its rich wealth of historical buildings is testament to its importance as a place of shipbuilding, trade, industry, culture and scientific investigation. As well as the most well-known buildings, such as the Old Royal Naval College, Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory, the author reveals the diversity of the buildings of Greenwich. Places where the working population as well as the upper classes lived, worshipped, drank and were entertained are also included, as are iconic industrial structures - many of which have had a change of use since they were built - interesting properties with a story attached, and out-of-the-ordinary modern buildings, of which there are many in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Greenwich in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating area of South East London through a selection of its most interesting buildings and structures, showing the changes that have taken place over the years. This book will appeal to all those who live in Greenwich or have an interest in the area.
