Title
View of Wellington Way
Description
View of vacant sites where houses were once situated in Wellington Way, Quickett Street and Ireton Street, Bow. The view is taken from a high building, likely Grafton House, a 1950s tower block of flats in Wellington Way. It is looking towards the railway viaduct and railway arches with Arnold Road (later Tidworth Road) beneath it. Beyond the railway are Victorian two-storey terraced houses in Fairfoot Road, and low-rise 1960s blocks of flats. Four coaches in Quickett Street and lorries by the railway arches are in view. On the other side of the railway viaduct, in the old railway and goods yard, smoke from a bonfire can be seen. The site was later used for housing and the original road layout altered with the removal of Quickett and Ireton Streets. Further housing was demolished and re-built on the other side of the railway in the 1970s, and a site for Travellers was later laid out on the old goods yard by Eleanor Street.
