I was so intent on this building that I didn't notice the ghost sign on the next-door building that had cars parked in front of it - Bermondsey Wire Works

109 Tanner Street – ‘Bermondsey Mesh and Wire Works’. Wire work was used for ornamental and utilitarian purposes; catalogues show meat-safes, aviaries, and trellises. Messrs W. Cockle and Co, Bermondsey St., are listed for wire-work in late 19th century trade books.

33 Tanner Street, now converted for residential use and called ‘Flag House’, was once a flag manufacturers or warehouse.

The recreation ground was part of the grounds of medieval Bermondsey Abbey, the site being later used as a tan yard. Bermondsey Workhouse covered half of this site, next to a hat manufactory, but was demolished in 1925 due to the efforts of Dr Alfred Salter and his wife.

82-84 Tanner Street was in the 1890's P.E. Fisher and Co., Tanners, Curriers, Leatherman,

S.H. and W. Hart, Leather manufacturer, Tanner Street. This firm first set up in Spitalfields in 1792. Their trade was currying harnesses and coach leathers, also dressing hides for powder bags to supply the troops during times of war. (1890s trade book)

Until the early 20th Century Tanner Street was the home of the Sarsens Vinegar factory.
