You can read more of the street's history here.
Many thanks Grave Maurice, is appreciated. I'm still fairly new to this site so should spend more time looking at the other sections before firing off questions to all and sundry.

Thanks again.

Monty, I had always thought that too, but it appears not to be the case. If you look at the old photos of Church Passage you'll see that same 'line' between the flagstones almost a foot from the northern side.

Observer - dare I point out that your Chamber Street photo doesn't show Swallow Gardens? It was a little off the right-hand edge.

These lovely frontages have been inder cover for quite a while now, but they've recently been uncovered and have had a bit of a spruce-up. And very nice they look too.

A rarity - Dorset/Duval Street, 1964. Spitalfields Fruit Exchange almost out of shot to the left, White's Row to the right. Commercial Street in the background.

Dorset Street? What Dorset Street?

I found an article a while ago written by an elderly gent who'd emigrated to Canada in the thirties and who's grandparents ownded the bakery at 56 Artillery Lane several decades ago when he was a kiddy.

I can't remember if I found it through google or you lot, but I bookmarked it, so here it is (again, maybe).
