(wholesale grocers) warehouse (by (Rob Clack says AFTER) 1895) [according to Chris Scott (2004 post- no dates given)- 1 building from Baker's Row to Thomas St., another from Thomas to Court St. Apparently, sometime after the murder (by 1929), they expanded & built these larger warehouses.] [also 2 K&T warehouses at Mitre Square]

Court St.- just from Whitechapel Road to Buck's Row, becomes Queen Ann St. north to ??
