Lost London: Trove of some of the earliest photos ever taken show how Thames has changed in 150 years

The Adam and Eve pub is pictured with three large multi-paned square windows, balconies on all three levels and rickety steps leading down to the shore.

This picture shows how the area was more socially and economically diverse in 1860.  In the background Chelsea Old Church is visible
