The building is a significant example of the major industry of the area in 19th-20th century (1808-1979). Set back from the road is the entrance to Mann, Crossman & Paulin’s Albion Brewery at 172 Whitechapel Road. The four stories high grade II listed building was constructed in the 1880s. Below the clock is the firm's logo of "Saint George Slaying the Dragon".

The ‘show-off Baroque style’ (Pevsner, 2005) details on the façade of the fermenting house at the rear of the courtyard portrays socio-cultural values of the period and of the organizations associated with the building.

A K2 telephone kiosk (1927) in front of number 331 is listed.
