  • Sorry everyone, I know this is not meant to be "I SPY", but you just can't help it...

      I think Robert was referring to Chris's mysterious photo, rather than the drawing of St Dunstan's, Anna.

      • Yes, I meant the photo, but with my eyes there's little difference. The man with the barrow looks like he's playing the double bass.

          • Hi Sam,
            Trust me to get the wrong photo.... at my age finding anything's a bloomin' miracle!

            • Gareth - excellent detective work. Sincere kudos to you there on the spire business. I'm sure it's on the original image; notice how the last houses in the street fade away.

              It's a pea-souper and no mistake, guv.

                The steeple in the background looks rather Gothic !!!

                If this photo was even taken in London, I'd guess Westminster, Lambeth, The Borough, or somewhere in The City ...
                I'd stick with The City, Colin. Could this be St Dunstan in the East, before it was flattened in the Blitz and reconstructed?

                ...note the gap under the peak of the spire.
                Good call, Gareth !!! I do have one reservation, however, which I will address presently. But first ...

                • Guys,

                  I was bored so did a little thinking, let me know what you think.

                  The image below seem to have been painted from St Dunstans Lane, virtually opposite St Dunstans in the East. Would that be right?

                  • Now,

                    Ive had a little study of this image below and feel it could have been taken from Cross Lane, formally Fowle Lane. Its possible the photographer was standing on the junction with Harps Lane.

                    Like I say, its just me messing about but Id be interested in what people think.

                    PS Colin, St Dunstans area was situated nearer the river, maybe the bucket chain reached that far....just.

                      Good shout, Colin - however, I'm not so sure that those buildings couldn't have been erected in the late 17th/early 18th Centuries, after the Great Fire - they look old, but not that old, perhaps.

                        Nice one, Monty. According to www.british-history.ac.uk, the first mention of Cross Lane, formerly Fowle Lane, was on Ogilby and Morgan's Map of London, produced 1677. Looks like it may have been rebuilt sharpish, and re-named. Presumably some of the nearby alleys and streets would have been restored to a similar time-scale.

                          • I am straining hard to see the clothing but it looks late Victorian or early Edwardian to me.

                            I actually wonder if it is in London at all? Perhaps someone made a mistake?

                            • Hi Limehouse-
                              Yep I'm with you on that one...Superb photo but somehow doesn't ring right as London...Hmmmmm That enhanced steeple in the background may help though..
                              Found these two lovelies today -First one labelled as 'An East End Street' and the second one as a 'Northern Victorian Street'..(sadly)

                                I saw the same photograph on another website and they, too, had labelled it as being in London, although they didn't stipulate "Spitalfields". I wish I'd bookmarked that other site, now...
