Dunstan House, Stepney Green
Dunstan House was one of the many 'improved' dwellings built in the area to replace the slums highlighted at the time of Jack the Ripper. They were built by the East End Dwellings Company in 1899. The company was founded in principle in 1882 by, among others, Samuel Augustus Barnett, vicar of St Jude's Church, Whitechapel. Its aim was to "house the very poor while realizing some profit", "their particular purpose being to erect blocks of dwellings, to be let by the room, so that the poorest class of labourers could be accommodated".

They are now sold as desirable properties - a far cry from their original purpose. This view is from Stepney Green.
