Buildings in Chrisp Street
A view of run-down and derelict buildings at the rear of Chrisp Street, Poplar (numbers 8 to 22 approximately), taken from the railway looking west. On the left with a two storey south-facing extension in brick is the rear of Bartons (a former bakery) at number 10. Trees and bushes have taken over the vacant site next door which is screened off from the street by hoarding. Behind a tall brick wall built above the railway embankment are numbers 14-16 Chrisp Street; on the skyline behind is the 19-storey Fitzgerald House, built in 1968 on the Lansbury Estate. The buildings are generally in poor condition with windows broken or missing altogether; some are boarded or bricked up, while iron bars on both the lower and upper windows of the building in the centre are visible. A wooden ladder can be seen discarded on the roof of a one-storey modern extension on the far right. These buildings on Chrisp Street no longer exist. A car park and housing now occupy the site. Fitzgerald House is earmarked for demolition and redevelopment.
