Anne Taylor in the garden of No.11 Parsonage Street, Isle of Dogs, in 1960. Beyond the trees is Christ Church. Parsonage Street was built of ‘Orlit' concrete block houses, erected by German prisoners of war. Most of these houses are still standing, but the end of the row was pulled down in the late 1960s to make room for the houses and shops opposite Christ Church now. When the Orlit houses were built in 1940s, there were allotments on what had been Newcastle Street (now Glenafric Avenue). Donated by Anne Taylor
