Those two windows (red/yellow arrowed) are curious indeed! Especially the one obscured by the lean-to roof.
Miller's Court was originally a garden wasn't it?
I have a plan of a similar set of cottages built off Opal Street, Kennington. Originally a garden; a court of 'one up, one down' cottages was built there. The floor plans of the original cottages even look exactly the same as the floor plans of the houses in Miller's Court. Mark Ripper found and posted a plan of the layout of the cottage/house close to 13 Miller's Court where Kitty Roman was murdered/

Can see why the yellow arrowed window remained but why wasn't the red arrowd window not bricked up if the slope roof of #19 was built over it? I clearly hasn't been bricked up when the added the lean-to so what did this serve?
also, could this yellow arrowed 'window' give us a clue to the door position of the ORIGINAL ground and 1st floor doors (seeing as windows and doors are often in alignment on multiple floor levers)?

Would this help us determine the door position in room #13 given that it's immediately below that yellow arrowed opening?
Could this be a way to discover the partition door location?

The yellow window is directly over the passage, if there's an extension then it is the back wall of the house and all I'd think is that there was a doorway in to number 13 from the main house that was blocked off. A partition wall seems to be just a wall that divided rooms prior to plaster boarding, and they were made of wood.

Debra,
The yellow window appears to be in direct line with the 1st floor window above the ground floor window which is the back shop of #27. That window is not in the passage but is in direct line with the front door of #27. So the yellow window would be in direct line with the front door of #27 and so I would say it's not directly over the passage.

Richard,
Isn't the yellow arrowed window on the 1st floor in the section of No 27 that is over the passage The ground floor window of No 27 is further to the right and one floor below? The yellow arrowed window seems to me to be directly over the passage and matches with the Goads that has the rooms over the passage belonging to No 27?

If you look at the sketch that i posted with the red/yellow arrow photo you can see the two thin windows right below the roof. The one that belongs to #26 is in line with the sloped brick wall that is the side of #19 & #13. That wall is the wall that runs to the front of #26. The other thin window right next to #26 belongs to #27 and would be directly over the passage. The yellow arrowed window is about 3 feet from the drainpipe that seperates those two thin windows and runs right beside the side wall that of #19. So the yellow arrowed window would be about 3 feet away from the side wall of #19 which would make it in direct line with the window on the ground floor which is macathy's backshop.
Have a look at this sketch. The yellow arrowed window is below and 3ft to the side of the thin window below the roof eaves. Directly in line with the windows below.

that's the way I see it anyway.

You've lost me...
BTW I was the first person to post that sketch so I have seen and studied it quite a few times.

Ha! Sorry, my description was a bit confusing.
Basically, in your sketch I've marked the widow that corresponds with the window in the photo with a yellow arrow. The window in your sketch (marked with a yellow arrow) isn't over the passageway. it is directly above and inline with the two other windows below it - which are next to the passageway.
The little window below the roof eves, however, IS directly over the passageway.

Suspect they were added to the plan during construction.

Ah, yes. I see what you mean now!
I wonder if there was any earlier use by the original owners that warranted extra ventilation holes or something like that?
Glass blowing or similar rings a bell with a previous owner but I don't recall the detail at the moment or if it was done on the premises.
