Blackwall Tunnel northern entrance. The original Tunnel opened in 1897 at a cost of £1.4M. It was a single bore, 4,430 feet (1,350 metres) long and was wide enough for a vehicle lane in each direction plus a pedestrian footway each side. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackwall_Tunnel

The Poplar Hospital for Accidents (the Dockers' Hospital). Opened in 1855 to treat dock workers, it became the general hospital for the area. Its principal founders were Samuel Gurney, a Quaker banker, and Money Wigram, a Blackwall ship builder and ship owner. The 'for Accidents' was dropped from its name in 1937. Closed in 1975 and subsequently demolished. See 'Lost Hospitals of London' - https://ezitis.myzen.co.uk/poplar.html
