    Alan Godfrey Maps is your friend, Dixon:

    http://www.alangodfreymaps.co.uk/aca...ets_60_69.html

    I make extensive use of the map catalogued as "L 063.2 Whitechapel & Bank 1894", a bargain at only £2.25. My thanks to Jaako Luukanen (aka "JakeL") for recommending the Godfrey maps to me many years ago.
    Kind regards, Sam Flynn

        Yeah, that's a great map. But, if it's the same scale as the one I've got, you might want to invest in a good magnifying glass at the same time.

          The gentleman behind Alan Godfrey maps is one of the nicest people you could deal with, he really helped me obtain some decent scale maps of Sculcoates some time ago. I have a large box full of Godfrey Editions including two of Whitechapel, 3 of Islington, 3 of Holloway, and over 30 covering Hull and surrounding locales. They also have notes and trade directory entries on the rear of each map and are much cheaper, and more realistic, than the awful Jack the Ripper map.

            True, GM. At least it covers all the territory, though. I've also got a full-scale reproduction of Booth's poverty map covering the whole of London, but that's frankly too big - actually, "enormous" is a better description - for day to day use

            Incidentally, I just remembered that a very good quality image (a 4.7 megabyte jpeg) of the 1894 map may be downloaded at Casebook, at the bottom of this page.
            Kind regards, Sam Flynn

              This is the "Stone Yard" next to Pavillion Yard off the Whitechapel thoroughfare, the site of the shed used as mortuary. What does the B. S. stand for?

                  'Boundary Stone'!

                  The southwestern and southeastern walls of the structure that is presumed to have been the Whitechapel Union Infirmary mortuary, coincided with the boundary that separated the Parish of St. Mary Whitechapel and the Hamlet of Mile End New Town.

                  The 'disused' graveyard was situated entirely within Whitechapel, while the (presumed) mortuary was situated entirely within Mile End New Town.

                    Guys,

                    Be aware that the 1894 map is not contemporary, obviously. Development had taken place since 88.

                    Roy,

                    Colin Roberts is your man, but Im thinking Boundary markers of sorts.

                      Colin,

                      I thought Chelsea was playing today. Shouldn't you be otherwise occupied?

                        To confirm.

                        B S stands for Boundary Stone.

                          Granted: The referee added eight minutes to the end of the first half, and five minutes to the end of the second half; but the final whistle was blown about six hours ago.

                          I don't watch football 'down the pub' anymore!

                          Two or three pints of Harp before noon (EST), and the rest of the day is shot!

                          Stoke City put up an incredible fight; and their choir was absolutely brilliant!

                              It's like censuses, isn't it Neil? They never did one when we really wanted them to!
