Sumner Street in the City

Sumner Street, SE1, The Way We See It.

Sumner Street is a strange old street. It’s fairly well documented, but alas lots of what was once here is now departed. The street was named in recognition of one John Sumner, Bishop of Winchester. In it’s time it’s had a large (if somewhat austere) church and it’s own school. Sadly both of these are now gone. The church was completely destroyed in WW2.

What is there now are some great views of the back of Tate Modern. Not terribly interesting you might think, but come back in a few years and you won’t recognise the place. This is where the new Tate extension is to be built. It will be nice to capture this street for posterity.”
