Millwall Docks

Image Number:





Island History Trust Image Collection


Millwall Dock in the 1930s or perhaps earlier: the building beyond the shipping in the centre of the photograph looks like Mc Dougalls Wheatsheaf Mills, and the four- masted barque was probably carrying grain. This is therefore a view of the south side of the outer basin, where the giant white silos were built in 1935. Donated by St. Mildred's Settlement
