Thanks Derek. I think there are a few more tucked away somewhere that I actually REMEMBER taking in the Royals :-D
This one scanned up much better than the others, many of them I gave up with, they just came out too bad.

Thanks Peter. And I think this is the only picture I have from Millwall Dock. This was taken in my very early days, I just found a few negatives in the loft today. What a great surprise :-)
