WHITECHAPEL ROAD. Whitechapel Society School Workhouse Almshouses 1834 old map

Price: £38.99

TITLE/CONTENT OF MAP: 'White Chapel workhouse, in part built Anno Domini 1768, enlarged & completed Anno Domini 1812. Repaired, improved and further endowed by Benjamin Goodwin Esq, formerly of Saint Edmonds Bury, and many years an inhabitant of this parish Anno 1767'

The view at the top shows the Whitechapel Society School, "repaired, improved and further endowed" by Benjamin Goodwin, formerly of Bury St Edmunds. The map at the bottom shows part of Whitechapel Road; the map is orientated towards the south. The workhouse is shown onthe lower (ie the north) side of the Whitechapel Road, adjacent to the school. New Road runs perpendicular to the Whitechapel Road in the upper left hand corner of the map (ie running in a southerly direction off the main road).

The top image on the right hand side shows the entire map. To view a close up of the map showing the level of printed detail, please click on the bottom image on the right hand side.
