Last summer, after we went to the museum of London, we couldn’t resist to go to museum of Docklands. The nearest station is West India Quay which is part of the DLR. The reason why it is called museum of Docklands is because there are a lot of ships and docks near the museum. Docks are places where the ships board.
Now that you know what docks are, you can recognise what’s happening in these pictures. These pictures remind us the clippers which we described in the post about the River Tour. But they aren’t actual clippers.
In the picture below you can see a ship which was used to transport sugar and slaves. Sugar was transported for many reasons but one of them was to be used in tea parties by the same people who bought the slaves.
A POST AGAINST SLAVERY!
We created this collage of doors and windows because it gave us the idea that through them you can travel to the past and see what was happening in London centuries ago.
You could also see how dangerous was to travel in the past. Some ship-crews weren’t lucky enough to arrive in London because of pirates, battles with other ships and…………. other unknown reasons.
The last picture is a wonderful view of one of the docks.
