With a workforce of over 100,000 men, women and children and reaching out to all corners of the Earth, London's Docklands, formerly the Port of London, at one time formed the largest and most comprehensive system of docks the world has ever known. The Museum of Dockland, an independent branch of the Museum of London, is devoted to keeping its memory alive and has produced this illustrated volume to help do just that. It examines every aspect of the port: the working river and its various docks; where the ship repairs took place; the warehousing and construction; the quayside and the dock trades. The text is accompanied by a collection of images drawn from a library of over 25,000 photographs, helping to convey the human drama of life and work in the port of the British Empire. This new edition examines the redevelopment of the Docklands, including Canary Wharf and the Millennium Dome.
