Island History Trust Image Collection


A view of the river, used to illustrate the brochure of the Isle of Dogs Housing Society (Second Building Scheme) This society raised money to build flats in Janet Street in the 1930s and published information to show potential donors what kind of place the Island was. This view appears to have been taken from Glengall Causeway, close to Phizzers Wharf, looking across to Smallpox pier, or the ‘Condemned hole' at Bermondsey. by I.O.D Housing Association
