Not at the Headland (where these pics were taken). But yes Seaton just along the coast has been a valuable source of sea coal for many years. It's the site of a submerged forest http://en.wikipedia....ubmerged_Forest

Your avatar suits you, Len.

Anyway - my Dad must have visited London at some point in the early '50s. St Paul's cathedral of course. All of the buildings in the foreground at the water’s edge have gone now. The tall building to the left is the Faraday Building, on Queen Victoria St. I found it on Google Street View. I believe this one was taken from a boat on the river.

And from the same strip of negatives, Southwark Bridge, with Cannon Street Station in the background. I think those are trams on the bridge, so this must have been taken before 1952. The station looks very different today; the train shed roof was removed in 1958, but the distinctive towers to each side remain.
