I have recently read two very good (and quite concise)books about the history of Southwark (which includes the south bank.) They are Southwark: an illustrated history and another which I can't remember the exact title of, but which has photos of the river years ago and now which are featured one above the other so you can directly compare the changes. They talk about how the area has changed in composition as well, so you can fill in some of the gaps when you interview people.
There's also a good website about the Coin Street
developers and how they saved the Oxo Tower from demolition at http://resurgence.gn.apc.org/184/koziell.htm
Hope this helps. Good luck with your project,
