The (Old) Isle of Dogs from A to Z

The Isle of Dogs in London has changed almost beyond recognition in the last 20 years. Mike Lemmerman’s book is an A to Z of many of the disappeared and disappearing Island buildings, roads, firms, schools, churches and more….with all entries accompanied by concise descriptions, and the book as a whole complemented by a collection of historic photographs.
