Isle of Dogs Contact Sheet

Contact sheet of a black and white film of The Isle of Dogs

Last week, we set out for a walk around the Isle of Dogs, visiting Canary Wharf, Heron Quays and West India Pier before torrential rain started! We had to abandon our walk around the headland, and headed towards Crossharbour DLR station. After the rain cleared up, we explored around Millwall Inner and Outer Docks before heading home from Heron Quays.

The 19th Century chimney was part of the M.K. Associates Carlton Shoe Company. It currently sits in a building site for the construction of a new foot bridge between Fish Island and the Olympic Park. Like most of this area, many old Victorian buildings are nestled amongst the increasing number of new redevelopments, such as this modern block of flats.
