Wych St, Spitalfeilds, approx. 1880s. Something so familiar for me about archaic old London. I'm convinced I had past lives in the East End.

Through the heart of the old East End ran the road called Commercial Road,it was built to solve the problems of the cramped slums or rookeries. The 1840s was a time when the east End problem raised its head and ideas were put to solve it, the road which had been aimed largely at slum clearance remained a white elephant in the middle of the East End, life went on as before.
