Reflections of the past- dock follies

Over the years many stories have emerged about thefts from the docks inNorth Woolwich, Silvertown, Canning Town and Custom House.

Here are two from over 100 years ago – from the old East Ham Recorder newspaper, which became the Newham Recorder in 1968.


These stories and other pictures from our past can be seen daily on my Facebook Page and Twitter pages and also the social media pages of the Heritage Newham – People, Places, Progress group.

Catch up with the daily. There have now been nearly 10,000 posts creating a lovely archive of local history. They are also shared with the social media pages of many groups in Newham sharing a love of history and heritage – enjoy.
