The land between Tooley Street and the Thames has been occupied by wharves and warehouses since the middle ages. Founded by Alexander Hay in 1651, the Hay's Wharf Company grew to own most of the quayside between London and Tower Bridges. Hay's Wharf Buildings were constructed in 1856 by Sir William Cubitt on the site of an 18th century wharf.
Wharf handled all cargos specialising in provisions and tea. In the 1860's, the use of cold storage was pioneered here and this are became known as "London Larder". Hay's Wharf stored 75% of the bacon, butter, cheese and canned meat needed for London.
