Great Nostalgic Picture - Just keep kicking myself for not taking more photographs when I was at sea. Interesting to see just one lonely tower block when now there must be dozens! Can anyone identify the Tower Block? I seem to remember one suffered from a gas explosion.

Interesting and puzzling picture. Could well be 13 shed, south side KGV, Glen Lines discharge berth, although the dry-dock and ship repair buildings would be in view. Victoria Dock quay cranes in the hazy distance to the right.
waiwera, looks more like an industrial tower in the centre at Silvertown. After the Ronan Point explosion at Canning Town in 1968 all other blocks were demolished.
Cheers, John.
