Lochnagar Street, looking east towards Islay Wharf

Before the coming of the Blackwall Tunnel approach road, there was a road called Brunswick Road from which Lochnagar Street ran and from which this photo was taken.

This area of Poplar contains a large number of streets with Scottish names because they were built on an estate which had been bought by the McIntosh family in 1823.

The initial letters of local street names were chosen alphabetically - Aberfeldy Street, Ailsa Street, Blair Street, Culloden Street, Dee Street, Ettrick Street, Findhorn Street, Leven Road, Oban Street, Portree Street, Spey Street, Teviot Street, Wyvis Street and Zetland Street.
