I walked up Brick Lane.
I assume this is Bishopsgate Yard awaiting redevelopment:-
There’s a nice bit of unlikely decoration at the corner of Sclater Street:-
A residual memory of the furniture trade on a warehouse north of the Museum of the Home:-
The belfry of St. Chad, Haggerston, designed by James Brooks:-
A distant view of George Loveless House on the Dorset Estate, designed by Lubetkin:-
The west door of St. Peter’s, Bethnal Green, designed by Lewis Vulliamy:-
The architectural riches of Bethnal Green.
One thought on “Brick Lane and beyond”
By coincidence, I am reading a newish book, The Five – The untold lives of the women killed by Jack the Ripper – and as you may know, the third victim’s husband was a carpenter in the furniture district, which I hadn’t known about before. Well worth a read.
