Research Project: Anchor Brewery

Here is some more photos of my assigned research section of the road. It is a gloomy exit out of the Anchor Retail Park.

The Adams House pictured below dates back to the Georgian times. It was part of the Anchor brewery.

The Tower Hamlets Archives proved to be a valuable place to research. The old maps that ranged from as vast as 1996, 1994, 1989, 1962, 1948 on the smaller maps. And 1938, 1913, 1894, 1873, 1870 for the larger scale maps. The most notable changes is evident in the Anchor Brewery structure. The images collection contains old photographs, postcards and newspaper cuttings. There is even an original sketch of a section of Mile End road.
