Renovation of a building in Stepney Green
Renovation of number 37-39 Stepney Green, Stepney, a Grade II listed Queen Anne House which was built in 1694 by Dormar Sheppard, a slave owner and merchant. Notable owners include Dame Mary Gayer, widow of the East India Company's Governor of Bombay, and in 1812-19 Nicholas Charrington, proprietor of the local Charrington Brewery. It became an institution and was a home for aged Jews after 1880, the Craft School in 1907, and served as Council Offices and a Careers Office during the 1980s. In 1998 it was purchased by the Spitalfields Trust and restored to become a family home. There is a builder on the scaffolding surrounding the building. To the right the entrance and part of the sign for the London Jewish Hospital are visible.
