This is a view of Deptford theatre and the Oxford Arms pub in Church Street.
Deptford became an important suburb of London in the 16th century, when it was one of England's main shipbuilding sites. The Royal Dockyard and the East India Company's yard were established here during the reign of Henry VIII. In the 19th century the town was home to chemical works, engineering works, gasworks, soap and candle factories, sawmills, coal and timber wharves, paintworks and breweries.
