Limehouse (again)

I had to take a photograph of the street where we used to live for a lecture I am giving tomorrow to the Art Fund, so I got up early to take the photographs before any of my former neighbours spotted me:-

Since the churchyard was open, I pottered round the churchyard, admiring, as always, Hawksmoor’s abstract geometry:-

And the tombs in the churchyard:-

Beyond is the Limehouse Church Institute:-

And the Star of the East:-

Last of the Limehouse landmarks is the old Passmore Edwards Sailors Palace, which was built as the headquarters of the British and Foreign Sailors Society in 1901:-

    Has anyone published something on Niven & Wigglesworth? It is certainly one of the interesting surviving buildings in the area, which I see regularly on my way from the Blackwall Tunnel to Arbour Square.
