London is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom. London was the world's largest city from about 1831 to 1925. The River Thames is navigable to ocean-going vessels as far as London Bridge, and to substantial craft well upstream of Greater London. Historically, the river was one of London's main transport arteries.

Tilbury is a town in the borough of Thurrock, Essex, England. As a settlement it is of relatively recent existence, although it has important historical connections, being the location of a 16th-century fort and an ancient cross-river ferry. It is also the location of a modern deep-water port.

Port of London is Great Britian's link with Empire both for passengers and merchandise. Goods worth nearly £500,000,000 pass yearly through the docks, over a third of their entire overseas trade. P.L.A. Docks cover an area of 4,247 acres and have 45 miles of quays.

Tilbury provides the first P.L.A. docks as vessels approach from sea, with an area of 725 acres and 4 miles a quays. Vessels using them trade principally with Australia, New Zealand, India and the Far East. Unsurpassed facilities for passengers, hundres of thousands arriving and departing every year. Landing Stage of 1,142 feet long enables liners to be accommodated during any state of tide. The King George V Dock, the most modern in London, was opened by King George in 1921.
