An entrance passage in Millwall, 1930, showing the doorway divided for use of two families sharing the same house. These cottages were probably over 100 years old at the time of the photograph, which was taken especially for the Isle of Dogs Housing Society brochure as part of an appeal for funds to raise money for ‘Slum Clearance' and to provide better houses in the East End. The Society built St. Hubert's House in Janet Street in the 1930s. Donated by IOD Housing Society
