In 1894 Tower Bridge was completed with a southern approach along the new Tower Bridge Road that ended at Tooley Street. Subsequently further demolitions were authorised so that Tower Bridge Road could be extended to join Bermondsey Street at its junction with Grange Road. The section of Tower Bridge Road in the Conservation Area was thus newly created and cut diagonally through Bermondsey Square, demolishing the east side. In c1900 before the new road was built and on the corner of Bermondsey Square was a pub called the King Johns Head, next to that was the firm Mundet Cork Products Ltd.

I guess the caption author only had the photo to go on. The photo was taken when Dockhead House was being built. The steelwork of the cage over the roof playground is being erected, and when complete it was covered in netting.
