Title: The collier Gaslight (1920) in Galleons Reach.
Description: The North Thames Gas Board's collier 'Gaslight' (1920) in Galleons Reach, passing the entrance to the Royal Docks. With the formation of British Gas after the nationalisation of the gas industry in 1949, the North Thames Gas Board administered the area from Windsor to Southend. It took over all the private companies that had operated in the region, including the massive Gas Light and Coke Company, together with their collier fleets. The GLCC had bought the 'Gaslight' in 1921, and she carried coal to Beckton and the Regent's Canal Dock.
