Dear Skylark,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Nice try, but James said (and I saw the original text) the name was
written as WOLLANEE Road, not WOOLANEE.
As I have already posted to the JCR group, very often the letter "W"
refers to a "ver" sound, not a "wer" sound, so in this case it
doesn't help to go looking up in a gazetteer for other streets
beginning with W.
The other problem I have with the Woolmore Street suggestion is that
it isn't in Whitechapel, but further east in Poplar, E14, not E1.
