NEATE STREET.

Neate Street SE5 1959 Taken at the junction of Coburg road.
The large building is the R. Whites soft drinks factory.
This appears to be a very desolate area in those post war days.

R. Whites began in 1845, with Robert and Mary White selling ginger beer in stone bottles from a barrow. Eventually it would engulf local rival Rawlings, with seven premises around the area. Locals recall the clatter of horses and carts used for distribution, and bottles bursting on hot days at the storage depots.
