Surrey Docks, Canals and Wharfs
When it was complete, Norway dock was connected to Greenland Dock, with no independent access to the Thames. All vessels using Norway Dock would first enter Greenland Dock and then enter through Norway Cut, the connection passage between the two.
Sailing vessels where called Onkers. This picture shows short planks being unloaded from an Onker onto a lighter at the Surrey Commercial Docks. In the London docks, Onkers were the last sailing ships to compete with the reign of steam.
