Island History Trust Image Collection


1920s. Manchester Road, Isle of Dogs, the SS Milvera in dry dock. Taken looking north towards the old swing bridge (later blue bridge), the entrance from the Thames into West India Docks. Glen Terrace is on the left. The road to the bridge now runs on the other side of the wall, which has been demolished; the dry dock has been filled in and built over. (Probably taken a few minutes after SS72) by Reg Tarbard
