A maritime community of considerable mercantile activity until the closure of the docks in the 1960s, Wapping nestles by the section of the river known as the Pool of London, which became so congested with boats during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when London was the busiest port in the world that it was commonly believed it was possible to cross from one bank to the other along the decks of waiting vessels.

Wapping’s Irongate Stairs – Tens of thousands of Jewish immigrants – ‘flocks of aliens, mostly Russians in top-boots and leather leggings and little round fur hats; wild-looking people from the most outlandish parts of that great uncivilised land’, according to the former head of the Flying Squad, Nutty Sharpe – first set foot in England at Wapping’s Irongate Stairs at the north-eastern end of Tower Bridge during the great waves of immigration from continental Europe at the end of the nineteenth century. On leaving their boats many of the new arrivals would bend down and kiss the ground in thanks for arriving in a country where they were free to practise their religion, and they were then greeted by Jewish welfare workers from the nearby Jewish Temporary Shelter at 84 Leman Street, set up by the Rothschild family to remove the uncouth manners andalien ways of the refugees. ‘We have now a new Poland on our hands in East London.
Our first business is to humanise our Jewish immigrants and then to Anglicise them, Rothschild once explained. Mass immigration from Russia eased off after the passing of the 1905 Aliens Act, which allowed the authorities to turn back immigrants they thought to be ‘undesirable’.
Entrance to former St Katharine’s Dock at Wapping – St Katharine’s, the dock closest to the City of London, was built by Thomas Telford in the 1820S and replaced the warren of crowded alleyways with names such as Cat’s Hole and Dark Entry that were home to some 11,000people, few of whom received any compensation for being forced out. New warehouses at Wapping were built to store tea, perfume, wine, wool, ivory, silver and live turtles (for turtle soup, a Victorian delicacy), but they were mostly bombed during the Second World War. Those that survived were demolished during 1970S redevelopment when Wapping was renovated as leisure and commercial area with a hotel (the Thistle Tower), offices, wine bars, health clubs and a yachting marina.
