These are the buildings from the Bermondsey Wall end. Not great quality, but the first is from 1963 and the second from 1930 which shows the flats to the south still standing. Even a campaign involving John Betjamen couldn't save Rotherhithe Street from London County Council's insane plans

Interesting story with these two photos . The first picture of the Pub shows that two doors away is 'Newmans' Tailors shop, showing a street number of 53 (which would make the pub number 51). It shows the name above the pub door as being G H WRIGHT.
The second photo showing a bar with four bar staff is probably the interior of the Jolly Waterman. Both photos were found together in the property of an elderly lady who passed away a couple of years back. There is no other information as to her details other than she was known as 'Florrie'. She told stories of how she played in her uncles’ pub which backed onto the river (The Thames?) and how the yard was infested with rats.The man second from right in interior shot seems to be similar to the man standing at the door of pub in exterior photo. Unfortunately, there are no dates.
