Hi we are trying to trace out family tree and have come up against an obstacle.

We are looking for anyone that may have known my nan or grandad they had 4 children Derek Jeanie Terry Tom and Roy.

They lived in Great Eastern Building in the 50's I think.

William Swanston Fisher Thorne was Superintendent of these buildings around the 1913 era. A lot of the family, even when married, lived there too. Looking for anyone connected to the Thorne family or who knew them. Diana  Mail-me

Brick Lane Harrys and Leons  

Probably know a lot of you who have posted these comments. No doubt we once played together. Spitting gob certainly brings back memories. Bet you don't remember black bob the dog who chased the cars. What about the wood yard by the back of Great Eastern buildings. How we used to raid Harry's and try to swipe a sweetie or two. Leon was too smart and kept an eye on everyone. What about Chutlers if thats the correct spelling on Brick Lane. Used to go and play table football there. That was all back the late sixties and early seventies.

Brick Lane linden buildings  

i read with interest about the great eastern buildings and i wonder if anyone remembers linden buildings on brick lane? they have certainly been demolished but does anyone know where they used to stand? my father francis thorne, known as frank, was born there at no 6 in 1920 and brought up there til after ww2. his father was also called frank and his mother alice. his grandfather, william thorne was the superintendant of the linden buildings at that time. i grew up listening to stories of brick lane, spitalfields, the shopkeepers , the market traders and local characters. i dont live far from there and visit often but there is no evidence of linden buildings. would be interested to hear from anyone with any memories of them.

Linden Buildings stood on the site currently occupied by the basketball court. I lived there with my parents and sister from 1948 until 1961 when we moved to Canada (Toronto). Small flats - 2 per floor.

Brick Lane linden buildings  

Yes Linden Buildings were situated in the northern half of Brick Lane, i.e. that part of Brick lane that extends from Bethnal Green Road. You can find it on google earth. If you head along from its junction with BG road the fist junction that you approach is that with Rhoda Street and Shackerwell Road. At that junction on the corner of Brick lane and shackerweyl road is a tall wire fenced play area this is the previous site of Linden Buildings. They stretched from that corner of Brick Lane and Shackerwell Stret for the whole length on the south side of Shackerwell until it met up with Bethnal Green road once again. For half the length of the road (Shackerwell it was very narrow and still is. Spent a lot of time their in the '50 and 60's my brother lived in them for a while. You could get onto the roofs of Linden building which was great fun in the winter and bombard people with snow balls.
