Hackney Wick and its diversity

Was walking around in Hackney Wick yesterday, which is a part of London where lots of great inventions the day of light, e.g. the concept of having toilet paper in sheets and not as one long role of paper, one of the earliest dry cleaners occupied a building in Hackney Wick, and the first rubber in the world was also made in a factory in this area. Today Hackney Wick is neighboring the Olympic Site, but traces of the old industry is still to be found in the form of old brick buildings and remains of these. I will be going back to the site a couple of more times to do more documentation, but the photos uploaded here gives a sense of the place.
