This is a well known photograph from the Hulton Getty Picture Collection and depicts Dominion Monarch at the end of Saville Road, Silvertown, London E16, on March 10th 1950. She is in the dry dock at the west end of KGV Docks.
This photo appears in the opening credits of the BBC TV programme "Call the Midwife". The last one in the series was screened last night. A womans programme really but gave an insight into life in the East End in the 50's.
