Jarret House and St Mary's Court were built in the 1980s, providing high-density housing for the growing population of Tower Hamlets. At the turn of the century this area had a very different feel. The shops in this stretch of high street represent many bygone trades, including a chandlers, an eel stew shop, a clg maker and harness maker. It also had a high density of entertainment venues, including the Bird in Hand pub, Black Swan pub, Three Cups Pub and White Horse pub. There was aslo a music hall - the Eastern Empire Music Hall and the Bow Palace Music Hall.
