    Default Help please; what was on the corner of Lord St and Whitechapel before Mothercare?

    Can anyone remember what shop or shops occupied the building before Mothercare and later Gap were present on the corner of Lord Street and Whitechapel? I know its a long shot but does anyone have a photo? Thanks very much

    Hi Partsky,

    This is probably a lot earlier than you're interested in, but Hope Bros. occupied the building in 1899, picture courtesy of LRO.
