Homes and Houses

A row of Victorian terraced houses, a three-storey town house, a post-war block of flats and a modern apartment block – oh, and a House of God, just for good measure 🙂

Delapidation, Demolition, Renovation, Rubble

There’s always some kind of residential building work going on here in East London – some delapidated or derelict homes sadly do get knocked down but most get fixed up and updated, one way or another 🙂

Corner Shops Big and Small

The Victorians seem to have been big on building local corner shops into the fabric of their terraced housing, where the entrance is set into the cut-off corner itself, on a diagonal to the rest of the walls – we actually live in a flat where the original building was once a Victorian corner shop plus accommodation (converted to three individual flats in the 1980’s) 🙂
