Haberdashers' Aske's almshouses
Haberdashers' Aske's almshouses
Along Pitfield Street in Hoxton is this magnificent building which was built by the Haberdashers' Aske's Livery Company. Robert Aske, a Master of the Company in the 18th century, established a foundation to finance the building of Almshouses within a mile of the City of London. By the early 19th century however, the houses were collapsing so they were demolished and a school was erected in 1825. Today, the Haberdashers' Aske's schools are in Hertfordshire and this fine structure has been converted into apartments.
