Royal Albert Dock and London City Airport
The London City airport is the 5th busiest airport serving London and the 14th busiest nationally (Wikipedia). There were certainly quite a few traffic movements on a summer Sunday afternoon.
Royal Docks :: TQ4080
The Royal Docks are three large docks in East London, known as the Royal Victoria Dock (opened 1855), the Royal Albert Dock (opened 1880), and the King George V Dock (opened 1921).

During their heyday most of imported goods to London came through the Royal Docks which were the largest enclosed docks in the world. They were closed in the 1980's, and now form part of a redeveloped Docklands.
