Wider Image: Life on the Woolwich Ferry 
The consul controls which are used to control the ramps to the Woolwich Ferry are seen inside the viewing tower in Woolwich, London January 24, 2015. The viewing tower is known to staff as the "bubble." The ramps to the ferry are manually controlled from the "bubble." The equipment is quite old and will soon be replaced with a touch screen consul. Now, as in the past, there are proposals for plans to replace the Woolwich Free Ferry with either a bridge or a tunnel. However, many of the ferry workers believe there will always be a ferry service at Woolwich, which has been a place for crossing the Thames since the Saxon times. The free ferry opened in 1889, with each boat licensed to carry 1000 passengers and 15-20 vehicles. Latest figures show that on average just under 80,000 vehicles and 22,000 foot passengers use the ferry every four weeks.
