East London Stores in Chrisp Street
East London Stores, an old beer shop, at 28 Chrisp Street, Poplar, on the crossroads with Grundy Street. A hanging sign fixed to the upper floor overlooking Grundy Street advertises Taylor Walker's beers. Next door, at number 30 Chrisp Street, a wooden cabin with a large flat overhanging roof houses Arnold's butcher stall. A lone shop fenced off by wire from a surrounding vacant, overgrown plot was Richard Jones' grocery and now appears to be a cafe offering 'breakfasts, dinners & teas'. A sign advertises 'good sausages'. A fixed striped awning shelters the shop front. Three passers-by huddle together on the wet pavement opposite for a chat. A saloon car is parked just beyond them on the left. Above Jones' shop fascia, a sign for 'Teas' fixed to the upper floor of a building in Tetley Street can be made out. The buildings were demolished to make way for a car park on Chrisp Street, while this part of Grundy Street no longer bears that name. However, the road can still be traced as a pedestrianised route through Chrisp Street Market, crossing through the car park to link with Brownfield Street to the east.
