Detailed map of Stepney; London sheet 64.
Introduction by Isobel Watson.
Coverage stretches from Sidney Street and Shadwell station eastward to Stainsby Road; and from the Mile End Road southward to the river.
Major features on these very busy maps include part of Shadwell, including Shadwell New Basin; Regent's Canal Basin; Commercial Road, which goes west-east across the map; Ratcliffe; Limehouse, including St Anne's church; Bow Common; Pedlars Orchard; Stepney Green, Albert Square, East London Cemetery, St Dunstan's church, Limehouse Cut, Regent's Canal. The main feature, of course, lies in the vast number of closely packed streets, and these remain some of our most popular maps. Each includes extracts from early street directories, giving a flavour of those who lived and worked here at the time.
