    Default Limehouse Public Library

    I drove by here the other day on the way home from a drain outing. It's one of those deceptive buildings, small roadside frontage but masses of building stretching back. Thought it might be of interest to someone localish to check out? bit of info:

    LIMEHOUSE LIBRARY ~ The Library’s foundation stone was laid on the 19th October 1900 by J. Passmore Edwards, a social reformer, who had also paid for the Library to be built. Then on the 6th November 1901, Edward Mann, the first Mayor of Stepney, opened the Library.
