Jewin Street
View of Jewin Street, City of London, looking east towards Redcross Street Fire Station, with pedestrians an open-top motor car. The eastern junction with Jewin Crescent is visible just behind the motor car. On the right, just past the post where the light breaks through the shadows, is the junction with Well Street. The drawing appears in J.J. Baddeley’s Cripplegate (1921) but his identification of the right turning as Hamsell Street appears to be wrong. Baddeley relates that in 1914 the street was lined with warehouses, most of multiple occupancy by firms related to the garment trade, including drapery, button, straw hat and sewing machine importers and furriers. Jewin Street no longer exists; it ran from Aldersgate Street to just north of St Giles Cripplegate where it met Redcross Street. Both Jewin Street and Redcross Street were demolished for the construction of Barbican Centre.
