Island History Trust Image Collection
Yard and buildings of George Clark & Son Ltd. (now Tate & Lyle), Alpha Grove, Isle of Dogs. Some of the buildings on the left are still standing and in use, (1980s). The pump in the right foreground was probably used to supply drinking water for the horses. Chimneys of houses in Alpha Grove can be just seen above the trees on the left.
