Frenetic construction activity near the Olympic Park as builders try to cope with housing demand.

 Not much left of the old East End, but a few relics such as this still remain.

Jack the Ripper’s favourite pub! Stalked several of his victims from these premises.

Right across from the Liverpool Street station. One of my favourites back in the day when it proudly really lived up to its name as the dirtiest pub in London. Now terribly up market and yuppified.
