Athough not a born and bred ‘Islander’ , it did not take me long to fall under it’s spell.
The Isle of Dogs is a place of great contrasts and contradictions but is home to thousands and the work destination of many thousands more.
My interest in local history led me into many of the nooks and crannies of the island and led to an idea of spreading it’s magic futher afield. For even in London the ‘island’ is relatively unknown and understood.
In recent years I have followed the Grand Master of all blogs , the gentle author and his site Spitalfields Life.
Therefore i unashamedly follow his path , not in frequency and scope ,that is beyond most people.
But I will chart the people and places of this little piece of the East End.
