JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom Assistance in Identifying a London Street #unitedkingdom

Eric Ellman


I could use some help in identifying a street in London >from a
handwritten school register.

I am looking at a book for students admitted to and discharged >from the
Chicksand Street School, Tower Hamlets. According to the register,
Janie Cohen (born 22 June 1894) was admitted on 7 September 1899 and
discharged on 9 January 1900.

I am having a hard time deciphering the handwritten address of the
family as provided by Janie's father, Israel Cohen. The handwriting
clearly says house number 49 and room (I assume apartment) 14. I
cannot make out the name of the street.

I've posted a vital record in Polish for which I need a translation.
It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much.
