History:
In 1887, the establishment of the Glass Brothers' pottery a few miles east of London gave rise to the small community of Pottersburg.  The hamlet later known as London Junction, was annexed by the city in 1912.
(London 200, pg 140)

Transportation
London Transportation Commission Ride-Guide Map
This well established area is located in the east end of London.  Dundas Street (Hwy 2) runs east and west leading you quickly to Thamesford, Ingersol, and Woodstock.  Veterans Memorial Hwy (formerly Airport Road) is located in an industrial area with very few cross streets, so it provides quick drive south to the 401. Veterans Hwy north leads you to London's International Airport.
