Hesperus Crescent

Image Number:





Island History Trust Image Collection


Probably the 1953 Coronation Party in Hesperus Crescent, Isle of Dogs. The steps in the background demolished in the 1950s, led to a footbridge over the railway siding which ran from Millwall Docks to Maconochies. This is now the alleyway leading from the Crescent into Chapel House Street. In the photograph are: Mrs Hooper, Ray Gardner, Pam Stevens, Win Haines and Brian Seymour. Donated by Tony Atkinson
