Full image caption

Labourers work on the redevelopment of East India Docks. Standing in the entrance passage from the basin to the export dock, John H Avery photographed construction work at East India Docks. In 1912, work started to widen the entrance passage between the basin and the import dock, which was parallel to the export dock. Transit sheds were also built on the quays. The East India Dock had only a few warehouses, so most cargoes were transported to the City of London for storage in the Town Warehouses. The steamship in the background could be from the Union Castle Line, which was one of the principal lines to use these docks. The liners carried passengers, cargo and mail to and from South and East Africa.
