Battersea Bridge (1860s)

James Hedderly was a photographer active in Chelsea before the building of the Embankment and afterwards.

This is a view taken from the tower of Chelsea Old Church. It shows the tangle of closely-packed houses and wharves between Cheyne Walk and Beaufort Street before the embankment. Beyond are the larger houses of Lindsey Row and the trees of Cremorne Gardens.
