Map of the Greenwich Peninsula and part of the Isle of Dogs (c.1872)

Bugsby's Marsh - the site of the O2 - was a particularly grim location being land to the south of Blackwall Point where executed criminals were hung in chains.

Rather interestingly, the routes of roads of the Isle of Dogs are shown laid out but overlayed onto the watercourses they replaced.
