Whitechapel

For some reason, I was able to get access to Christopher Howse’s article in the Daily Telegraph about Whitechapel (see below), prompted by the publication in June of the new two-volume Survey of London volumes on Whitechapel, which were runners-up last night for the Colvin Award for the SAHGB (it would have been hard, if not impossible for anyone to beat Mark Girouard’s Biographical Dictionary of English Architecture 1540-1740, which Girouard had been working on since 1954). As Howse rightly points out, the area is changing fast. There is a good photograph of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, still extant and needing to be preserved.
