I am a safety advisor to the construction industry and have a keen interest in architecture and the built environment.
Why I was interested in this project:
Having been born in Stratford and lived more than half my life in the East End I was inspired to contribute to this valuable work.
Significant Buildings Researched:
1. Trinity Green Alms Houses [view]
It is interesting how different historical perspectives have been applied to this group of buildings and, although now in private hands, any alterations are very tightly controlled, thus creating a legacy for future generations.
2. Park House [view]
A pleasant building which has survived in mixed and commercial use.
3. 31 Mile End Road [view]
4. 39 Mile End Road [view]
5. 51 Mile End Road [view]
Unfortunately it doesn’t merit any further investigation because of the subsequent alterations made to the building.
