A misty Highbridge Street

Highbridge Street, near the Lea Bridge. This area was often misty during winter time, with the many rivers and the marshes just over the bridge. The road is still unmade. The Kings Arms public house is on the left and Perry's River on the right. This area is completeley different to-day. The river has gone, as has the Kings Arms. The road has also been widened. This picture c1885.
