Shops and derelict pub in Oley Place
Shops and derelict pub at 96-108 Oley Place, Stepney, viewed from the junction of Redman’s Road and Oley Place looking north-west. On the right at number 96 is a two-storey newsagent’s shop with an advert for the News of the World on its front wall. All the other buildings are three-storey. Number 98 is a functioning shop. Number 100 has a low brick wall with an iron gate round it. Numbers 102-106 are derelict; they are propped up, the roofs have fallen in and they are surrounded by corrugated sheeting as is the derelict Royal Oak pub at 108, on the corner of Oley Place and Redman’s Road. The pub’s main entrance is on Oley Place but it also has three entrances on Redman’s Road. The first-floor windows on Redman’s Road have ancient Roman-style pediments above them, two pointed and one arched. Between them are metal support bolts. All the second-floor windows are broken. Above this window on Oley Place is a plaque with “Whitbread & Cos” and another word that is not clear carved on it. In the foreground at the left is a telegraph pole and on the right a streetlamp. Behind the lamp, a house and trees on Stepney Green are visible. There is a car outside 96. The pub was open from 1828 until at least 1940 but has been demolished, as have the other buildings in the photo. Number 108 Oley Place was originally 108 Cross Row, then 108 Stepney Green. Cross Row and Oley Place no longer exist. There is a modern block of flats on the site.
