    There was one in Whitechapel too wasn't there Joe, further on from the Spanish house? I seem to remember getting my borstal breakout black plimsols from there with the shiny rubber toecaps in the early 70s.

    Great image Colin. Thanks again.

    "Grot-spots". At least that original gin palace, The Vines, would lessen the pain of looking at such an eyesore? Well, at least, after a couple of glasses, no doubt?

    Here's the corner in 1952 showing the temporary shops and walk through. The original corner was bombed during the war along with nearby Lewis's and BLacklers.
