Electric Street Transport
Bits Still Left

This little hut at Abbey Wood was a Tram/Trolleybus shelter. Before 1935 Erith Corporation cars met the LCC ones here. A change was necessary to travel to from Woolwich. When the trolleybus route 698 replaced Erith cars they enabled a through journey.

Greenwich Power Station from the North bank of the Thames. It was built between 1903 and 1910 by the London County Council to provide power for the LCC tramways.  After the withdrawal of trams and trolleybuses it helped provided power for London's Underground. It is still in use today but only to back the Underground.

To the left of the picture can be the coaling stage out in the river, which is now disused. The large white windowless building to the right of the main one was the coal bunkers.
