Deptford's got bottle

A couple of photos found their way into my inbox yesterday.  They came from  Simon Cowderoy, long-time Crossfields resident who currently resides at a latitude several seconds west of the estate.  I thought there was something typically ''Deptford'' about them - humour and maritime history encapsulated.  From a £2 ship in a bottle bought in the market to the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square, they made me smile anyway.

Simon tells me that there's actually a little-known 5th plinth in Deptford where the ship has a more permanent resting place.  He was kind enough to send me a photo of it standing proudly above what appears to be an artefact from  Deptford Power Station...
