T & W Farmiloe Ltd.

T & W Farmiloe Ltd., Cringle Street, Borough of Wandsworth, London SW8, 2011 & 2012 Immense-doored works-cum-warehouse once belonging to a 150-year-old glass, lead, paint and sanitary ware manufacturing company, dissolved 1988. There’s lots of info about the firm here and here. Apparently the premises later became a Securicor depot, though when I photographed it, it appeared to be squatted, with a coach outside picking up a bunch of luggage-toting eastern Europeans. It was next to Battersea Power Station, and has since been demolished as part of the redevelopment there.

  1. The first photo is wonderful (well, they all are, of course) — that streetlamp just makes it, and then there’s the ghostly door in the wall behind it. The best one yet, I reckon, and that’s saying something after the Kent’s Chemist photo. What a contrast. I’m really enjoying this series.

    • Very kind, though I took this with my worst-ever camera – I need to go back and get an image with more detail before they knock it down. Nice to have a commenter who appreciates the grimmer frontages – the ornate shopfronts are genrally far more popular!
