They've probably used a zoom lens when taking that photo. My guess is that it was taken from the roof of the easternmost end of Priory House, as that was built before the K&T warehouses nearest Mitre Street were demolished and the rest of Priory House was built.
Clearly all of the K&T buildings have gone, as you can see the cellars in the bottom right hand corner of the photo, and if I recall correctly, didn't the main section of Priory House go up in 1979/1980, making it the last part of the old Victorian era square to be demolished?
Hi there, I'm presuming the archaeology book is a MoLAS edition? May well be wrong though! Could anyone let me know the name of the book that the Mitre Dig picture came from please? I'm having trouble finding it. Thanks a lot, Kate.
that is such a fantastic find ! this is the kind of thing which tells me that we have only scratched the surface of what is out there and relevant to this case......photographs really inspire me and help me to envisage what this small part of London looked like back in the day.....thank you so much !!
