Looks grim, doesn't it?
Wasn't Stanley Street another with warehouses, can't quite remember? Also, was the Post Office sorting office at the bottom of Stanley Street? Remember we would get off at Exchange Station and walk virtually in a straight line down to Whitechapel in the centre.
Your eyes are fading and my memory is going!
Stanley street had a lot of fruit importers offices, a couple of small shipping offices and a couple of insurance companies. Yes, the sorting office was in Whitechapel, exactly where the Met Quarter is today. They built a new Post Office there in the eighties and knocked it down not long after
