Alpha Grove (1962)

Alpha Grove (previously Alpha Road) runs from Strafford Street to Tiller Road on the Isle of Dogs.

Alpha Grove ran right through to the West India Dock fence dock - its cranes can be seen at the end of the road. When built in the 1800s, Alpha Road followed a section of the old island path, Dolphin Lane.

The road running across the view in the photo is Byng Street.
