Millwall Dock
Millwall Dock
Millwall Dock, in London's Docklands.

Millwall Dock opened in 1868. During the 1960s and 1970s, the docks gradually closed, replaced by container ports and air freight. After a period of lying derelict, London's Docklands were transformed by regeneration.

The lifting bridge to the right of the image was built to carry a road across the working dock. The large block of apartments is a far more recent addition to the scene.
