St. Edmund's Church 1910s

Image Number:





Island History Trust Image Collection


St. Edmund's Roman Catholic Church, Westferry Road, Isle of Dogs, about 1910. The church was built in 1876, replacing the earlier church of St. Edward in Moiety Street. Beside the church, and opposite, were the steel works of Samuel Cutler. In the 1990s St. Edmund's was demolished to make way for a new church and community centre.
