Trading Words: London Dock's 400 trading history

Dragonsblood and Bears Grease are part of a new exhibition called Trading Words that's opened in Tower Hamlets.

It lists some of the ordinary and exotic products from across the globe that arrived at London Docks over the last 400 years.

It's in celebration of new housing being built down at the old docks.

The artist wants the new residents to know about the area's rich history that their new homes will now be a part of.

Trading Words is on until 30th April.
