Historic and Industrial Buildings

This survey, completed in 1986, covers the urban environment of South Shoreditch, where an extraordinarily rich survival of buildings of architectural and industrial archaeological interest is to be found.

This forms a systematic recording of the buildings in South Shoreditch, with a historical account of the growth of the area and its emergence in the 19th century as a centre for workshops in the furniture, clothing and printing trades. The survey concludes with a strategy for the future development of this unique part of London.
