A corner of the living room / bedroom in an old cottage in Millwall, 1930, with typical fireplace ornaments and brass bedstead. This photograph was used as an example of poor housing conditions on the Island and published in the Isle of Dogs Housing Society brochure as part of an appeal for funds to provide better houses in the East End.
