JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom searching Greenwood Map #unitedkingdom

Hi List,
I have found this incredible map at http://www.bathspa.ac.uk/greenwood/
but I am not wel enough acquainted with names of towns, areas, parts in
London to enable me to find what I am looking for.
Is there anyone who could point me in the right direction to find how I can
determine in what part of London the Tewkesbury Buildings were situated on
this map?

I have found on the Victorian London A-Z Street Index
at http://www.gendocs.demon.co.uk/lonstr_t.html the following indication:
Tewkesbury Buildings, Whitechapel High Street, WHITECHAPEL [1871]

The Greenwood map dates >from 1827, so how should I go about this? Was
Whitechapel a "new town" built later than 1827 and if so whereabouts?

Another interesting site is The East of London Family History Society (if
you're interested it is at http://eolfhs.rootsweb.com/eolintro.htm ). Not
specifically Jewish.

Thanks for any help.
Regards
Menno Nykerk
