Stepney Green: Stepney Green Court, E1
The building on the right is Stepney Green Court, formerly Stepney Dwellings. It was built in 1896 by the 4% Industrial Dwellings Company. This Jewish company, chaired by Nathaniel, Lord Rothschild, built good quality, but low rent, accommodation for the working poor of the East End. The Rothschilds raised the money for the construction from wealthy Jewish businessmen on the understanding that the profits for the shareholders would be limited to 4%.

The cobbled street is defaced with the usual over-zealous yellow lining.
