Thriving port, derelict wasteland, contemporary vibrant business centre: few places in Britain have seen such extreme changes of fortune as London's Docklands. This book reveals the area's mysteries and secrets, such as the launch site of the Great Eastern, where pink pigeons were a common sight, where to find a piece of Britain's first iron-clad frigate, and how Muchute got its name.
