    Such sad pictures. I grew up on the East End and my father was a Kosher butcher. He worked for Maxie Strongwater in Old Montague Street. He made the best Vienna’s and SaltBeef ever.
    Thanks Ven,

    Yes, definitely Strongwater. Thanks for that link, absolutely fascinating, great pictures. Really shows the effects of time and change. Interesting personal connection you've got there too.

    Any details on this one? Looks post war, either bomb damage or general dilapidation.

    The remains of the shop sign are still visible but I can't make it out.

    The Bon Marche store tells us it was after 1921.

    The folk singers suggest late 1940s,early 1950s.

    259 is where Joseph Merrick was first "exhibited" in London. Building looks the same today.

    I'd be inclined to say 1910's - WW1.

    The truck has solid tyres, unfortunately it's hard to establish more, but it fits that period.

    Was there any description with the picture?

    Over the years this has been my favourite thread on Casebook.

    Here’s a small contribution, something I’ve already posted over on JTRForums. It’s a photo of Dunbar House, a doss house at 42, West India Dock road that was taken over by Jack McCarthy in the early 1900s. It seems that at one stage the notorious ‘Squibby’ was running it for McCarthy.
    Mr Barnett thanks for your kind comments sir!wow not seen this image it’s a cracker along with McCarthy connection definitely my kind of thing!!This forum is fantastic interesting often funny and importantly friendly!!Some threads can be repetitive sometimes absurd but always interesting again thanks

    Hi Christian,

    I've no doubt your photographic contributions are greatly appreciated, I certainly enjoy them. The thread doesn't generate much chatter, I suppose, because they don't pose questions or some such, there's maybe not so much to discuss. Be that as it may, I'd wholeheartedly encourage you to keep putting up your findings. You've got a bit of a niche interest, but one that's undoubtedly appreciated.

    (Here's a tip. Post a picture, and put "is this Mary Kelly? That'll get a response)

    As for your tatty old books, no one wants to see them. I'll help you declutter. Offers there.
    Thanks for your kind words al the tatty books I shall ponder on that one sir yes the scenes of the crimes streets alleys etc have always been a massive passion for 30+ years as have the tatty books! I enjoy most of the threads posts on here but some of it is repetitive argumentative often pointless!! And often fun again thanks

    2 doors down (no. 46) was where Johannes Morgenstern and Elizabeth Boekee (Morganstone and Buki) moved to from Pennington Street around 1890.
