East Ferry Road

Image Number:





Island History Trust Image Collection


No. 1 East Ferry Road, Isle of Dogs. This house has now disappeared, but probably stood next door to the Queen public house. Built in the early 19th century shortly after the first docks were opened, it is typical in size and style of many of the first Island houses. There is a very similar house still standing at No. 209 East Ferry Road, just behind The Nelson public house. Donated by GLC
