More Sights of Whitechapel 

A very Victorian looking street


Spitalfields has long been associated with the cloth trade. Several wholesalers and small businesses still operate in the area.


Looking up Fournier Street from the notorious Ten Bells Pub


These particular streets are some of the finest examples of their type… Built for aristocratic Huguenot refugees from France in 18th Century


I love this door… Like Platform 9 3/4 in Harry Potter


Not do long ago, this would have been one of the better looking properties in the area.


Looking up to the Trumans Brewery


The famous Brick Lane – a mile of the finest Indian restaurants in the world.


Brick Lane mosque… At night the minaret glows from neon lights. 100 years sho it was a synagogue, 200 years ago a Huguenot church.

Fournier Street was named after George Fournier. Once the most likely home of Jack The Ripper,for the many decades it has been the hope to the internationally renowned collaborative art duo of Gilbert and George.

    I like the colors in your 6th picture down. The pinks are multi-colored…and antiqued.
