1870 map: the metropolitan borough in green
Poplar is an area of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It includes the docklands area, surrounded by a large bend in the River Thames, called the Isle of Dogs. From 1900 to 1965 it was part of the Metropolitan Borough of Poplar, which also included Bromley (referred to as Bromley-By-Bow to distinguish it from Bromley in South-East London) and Bow.
