The Isle of Dogs by Mike Seaborne

Industrial Revolution

The Isle of Dogs: Before the Big Money is a photo-essay by Mike Seaborne. Former Senior Curator of Photographs at the Museum of London. He offers a rare glimpse into East London’s industrial heart through images he took from 1982-87, just before Canary Wharf’s development transformed the area forever. The book captures the spirit of a close-knit community with factory workers on tea breaks, children paddling in the Thames and the DLR’s construction.
