Magic Lantern slide showing the view from Aldgate towards Whitechapel. In the distance can be seen Whitechapel Church (St Mary Matfelon) with its distinctive clock. On the right, about half way down, is Gardiners department store. About 1890?. Whitechapel Church (assuming it is the 4th and final one) opened in 1882, but Gardiners does not yet have its tower. Traffic, all horse drawn, was just as heavy then as now it seems.
