Thurman, an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, has been photographing the Thames for over 40 years and, in this illustrated essay, his black-and-white images and accompanying text chart the river's numerous changes, from the decline of shipping and the demolition of warehouses to the growth of tourism and the expansion of housing along the river's banks. Massive social and economic changes are represented in Thurman's photographs, and he considers these briefly in his introduction to the collection.
