          • This photo of John's Hill gives some idea of what Breezer's Hill, a little to the west, might have looked like when MJK was resident.

            Imagine a fairly new wool warehouse taking up the whole of the western (right) side of the street, a pub (the White Bear) at the NE corner, and a former pub (the Old Red Lion) on the SE corner (79, Pennington Street). In between were just 4 small houses.

            It seems most likely that MJK was at 79, Pennington Street, but nos 1, 2 and 3 Breezers Hill were also apparently brothels at one time or another.

            The buildings in the background are part of the London Dock.

              That's a great map, Bill, but the link was broken. Correct link follows.

              • Between John's Hill and Breezer's Hill lay Artichoke Hill, on the corner of which old Ma Lechmere had her cat's meat shop.

                • Durward st, board school from Whitechapel station 09/2018

                  Slightly strange angle, too many roadworks or crossrail going on.

                          And why would you need to do that?

                                It's Wapping innit, the soft ground lets the pics tip over.
