The Vinegar Works of old Bermondsey

The Vinegar works, off Tanner Street in Bermondsey, closed around the end of the last century after a 200 year long history, by which time it had become 'Sarsons'. Alexander Robert Cryer was the foreman/manager there for many years, certainly from before 1864. He was still working there in 1901, at the age of 70, although no longer as the manager.
