  • Use from your armchair or on location 
  • See archive material including historic paintings, photographs and models 
  • Hear local residents' memories and anecdotes in one minute audio interviews 
  • Learn about the industrial and shipbuilding heritage of Greenwich 
  • Document the changing nature of the Greenwich riverside by taking your own photos and publishing them to the Viewfinder website
