Poplar, London. Sat 6 June, 2009
and with a local trail plaque which tells us the block was named after the Susan Constant, one of 3 ships that took settlers from Poplar to Virginia in 1606
The 1930s pub 'The Resolute' , named for HMS Resolute, one of the ships sent in 1850 and 1852 to search for Sir John Franklin, lost in the N W Passage
The plaque on Collins House, reads 'Site of' above the stone from an earlier building ' Collins' Place 1804'
Left: one of a few remaining older buildings at the east end of Poplar High St. Right and below: Robin Hood Gardens
Despite the Blackwall Tunnel approach next door it is very quiet inside Robin Hood Gardens
