Few little facts about Poplar
Poplar is situated in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Poplar also contains a Seamen's Mission, reflecting the area's long-standing connection to London's docks which for so many years gave the area employment. The original mission stood on Hale Street, but the current mission stands on the north side of East India Dock Road. Having fallen out of favour as a Mission, the building became the local headquarters of the Gas Board (testament to which is the gas fired streetlights to the rear of the property); it then became a Working men's club before it was finally converted into executive apartments.
Harry Redknapp - current manager of Tottenham Hotspur; former manager of Bournemouth, West Ham United, Southampton and Portsmouth. Father of Jamie Redknapp, the former Liverpool captain was born in Poplar.
