View of Millwall Dock Inner Basin in the 1960s, showing “The Glass Bridge” built to replace the previous “barge bridge”. The Port of London Authority installed the new bridge after a campaign by local residents who were anxious to retain the right-of-way across the dock, connecting the two halves of Glengall Road, The western half of Glengall Road was re-named Tiller Road. The Millwall Dock Granary is visible to the left and in the background are Blackwall Reach and the Brunswick Wharf Power Station. by Mr Smith
