In brief

26th September 2003 at 01:00
Two hundred years ago, the quayside at West India Quay used to be known as Blood Alley because of the cuts and bruises sustained by dockers toiling with heavy sacks of raw sugar. Today it is overlooked by skyscrapers, converted warehouses and leisure complexes. But the tough old days have been brought back to life at the Museum in Docklands. Covering everything from the Romans to the rise of Canary Wharf, it illustrates the changing fortunes of the former port. Admission for schools is free. Tel: 0870 4443855
