A few photos of the Docklands museum.

I can honestly say the the Docklands museum is one of the best museums I’ve ever been to. The exhibition starts with the history of London and the sugar slavery and ends in modern times. My favorite section was on WW2 and how the docks we affected during the Blitz. Ok, I’m lying, my favorite part was a side exhibition; the Sainsbury Study Centre which documents the history and development of one of the nation’s oldest food retailers, from its foundation in London in 1869 to the present day. Displays showcase the history of Sainsburys, with sections on the Sainsbury family, uniforms, advertising and the development of packaging since 1869!

During the Blitz people would leave notes on their doors with forwarding addresses.
