Tower Gateway DLR and Minories railway station (site)
Opened in 1840 by the London & Blackwall,this was the original site of Minories station, the terminus of the London & Blackwall Railway. It was soon extended to Fenchurch Street station, in the distance to the right. Minories continued as a goods station until the early 1950s. In 1987 history repeated itself as a terminus station was again opened on the same site - Tower Gateway, for the Docklands Light Railway.
