The fire of 22 June 1861, which destroyed Cotton's Wharf & Chamberlain's Wharf, between Tooley Street and the Thames (site of London Bridge Hospital). It burned for over two weeks, destroying three acres and about £2 million of goods, including hemp, cotton, sacks of sugar, wooden casks of tallow, bales of jute, boxes of tea and spices. At least six men were killed, including the captain of the fire brigade, James Braidwood (whose facsimile signature appears lower left), crushed by a falling wall. James Thomas Loveday, 'Surveyor of Risks' of the Phoenix Fire Office spent two and a half years compiling plans of wharves and granaries along the Thames to assess fire risk for insurance purposes. This plan, detailing the owners of the affected buildings, was adapted for the 'Weekly Dispatch Atlas', a periodical. This volume held at Guildhall Library, covers an area on the south bank of the Thames from London Bridge to the Globe Granary at Rotherhithe and on the north bank from London Bridge to Tower Dock.
