I'm doing another of my mini features about the line of derelict shops I came across on Toynbee Street, Spitalfields, London E1.
Anyone know what's happening to the block or anything about the old shops there?
Seriously doubt it. The previous buildings on the site that were cleared as "slums" might well have been. But I will eat my hat if that terrace wasn't built by the LCC sometime between 1895 and 1915 -the giveaway is the overly "architectural" design of the shopfront surrounds.Judging by the wide windows on the first floor they might have been silk weavers cottages at one point, just a guess.
