hi folks..ugently seeking pics of shadwell st...i am struggling on this one so any help give would be great..i am trying to help a friend whos mom first lived above the gunmakers arms and then moved into a house in this street....its her 76 birthday in august and to see any pics of where she lived would really make her day
As you know I don't know this area of the gun quarter well at all you will remember we have discussed it before. So with the photos I have been led solely by the names they were tagged with and the one in question is tagged Shadwell St. I know that in itself that means nothing so I am perfectly willing to accept what you say. Once again falling victim to some fool of a researcher who didn't do their job properly.
hi please dont worry about it...happens to all of us who collect old pics...this street is proving a toughie to find pics of the houses that was once there...ive got until august though so will plod on..
Here are two associated with Shadwell st. One shows the view up shadwell st to the left, with St chads to the right. The other is looking from the canal and shows (over the fence) some of the buildings to the left of the back of St Chads
I'm 5 years late with this I know but the 3rd photo ( Phil #2 ) is definitely on the corner of Shadwell St & Bath St ( the junction of Snow Hill visible down the hill). I know this because in 1960, before I left school, I worked part time from that building on the corner. It was known as Rowland Keen ( gunsmiths ) then. Later that year they were forced to move into Lincoln Jefferies shop in Steelhouse Lane because of the coming Queensway construction. I know the Gunmakers Arms was on the corner of Little Shadwell St & Bath St because Lincoln Jefferies kept some of their stock in one of the buildings next door to the pub. The first photo looks like it could be the bottom of Little Shadwell St & Shadwell St.
