London's docklands, 1870s

On the 1870s Ordnance Survey, both the Isle of Dogs and Surrey Docks were in place and thriving.

I do love a rural vestige and both on the Isle of Dogs (west of the Millwall Docks) and in Deptford (under the jumble of railway tracks), the last of the market gardens are holding out.
