taken 8 years ago, near to Stepney, Tower Hamlets, Great Britain

Mile End lock and lockkeeper's cottage
Mile End lock and lockkeeper's cottage
The C19 cottage beside the lock has been taken over and extended by Queen Mary London University as part of their Graduate Centre. Once the dwelling would have been tied to the keeper's job of operating and maintaining the lock along with taking tolls, keeping records and monitoring the water level. Today's recreational boaters have to manage the procedure on their own.
