    • Poplar High Street
      South side
      'Poplar High Street: South side', Survey of London: volumes 43 and 44: Poplar, Blackwall and Isle of Dogs (1994), pp. 77-90. URL: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=46471. Date accessed: 07 August 2007.


      Nos 128154 and Simpson's Road (all but No. 1302 demolished).
      The only building now directly abutting on Poplar High Street here is the Roman Catholic Settlement of the Holy Child at No. 130(132) (Plate 11d). This demure block was built, primarily as a youth club, in 19556, to designs by Adrian Gilbert Scott (18821963) in a style consonant with that of his clergy house for the church of SS Mary and Joseph in Upper North Street (see page 239). The pre-stressed concrete floors were designed by Concrete Limited of Leeds. (ref. 526) The longitudinal shape of the building indicates that it occupies two of the deep sites on this side of the High Street. The side fenestration reveals the arrangement by which the rear part has a two-storey club-room rising from basement level, thus accommodating the steep fall of the site that has always characterized this side of the street.
      The Settlement, which took its present name in 1913, derives from a settlement at Tower Hill founded in 1893, which moved to Poplar in 1918, and Nos 130132 in 1920. (ref. 527)
      Discounting possible pre-seventeenth-century building, the frontage between Poplar Terrace and the east side of Simpson's Road was the last considerable part of the High Street to be completely developed. This was in the 1850s, when it was the freehold property of the Stock family.
      Nos 128136 were built between 1857 and 1861 at least three of the houses by Adin Sheffield, a builder of Bromley. (ref. 528) On the 186770 Ordnance Survey map they seem to be unique in the High Street in having some sort of small garden, or perhaps only an 'area', in front of them: an exception was No. 134, the one house of the five then in a shopkeeper's tenure. The other occupants (in 1868) were a rate-collector (with a particularly spacious garden), a solicitor, a relieving officer sharing a house with the district surveyor, and an architect at No. 136, E. L. Bracebridge, who was probably responsible for the design of all these houses for Mrs Stock. However, in respect of No. 136 at least, his assistant Thomas Wayland Fletcher (see page 63) claimed the actual designing. (ref. 529) By 1892 Bracebridge was the only surviving 'professional' man in these houses. Between the wars they were often in use for 'public' or charitable purposes. (ref. 530)
      Nos 138154 had probably been part of the scattered property held of the manor of Stepney both north and south of the High Street and bought in 1690 by the London goldsmith Abraham Chambers from the executors of Sir William Portman, whose family had held it since 1652 or earlier. In 1773 the lease and in 1775 the enfranchised freehold passed to William Currie, esquire, the owner-occupier of the big house opposite at the site that became Nos 119123; (ref. 531) and, as the owner-occupiers of that house continued to own this south-side property, it may have been partly considerations of 'amenity' that kept it undeveloped. In 1797 John Stock acquired both properties from the Curries, (ref. 532) but no development took place until the Stocks gave up the big house and rebuilt that site in the 1850s.
      In 1852 Edward Stock sold off the frontage at what became Nos 138152 as five freehold plots. (ref. 533) The purchasers were all local men a chemist (for the site of No. 140 and, probably, No. 138), a stationer (No. 142), a victualler (No. 144), an auctioneer (No. 146) and a surgeon (Nos 148152 and Simpson's Road behind them), although only the auctioneer John Carter lived here. (ref. 534) He was a party with Stock to the sale of sites, and is likely to have been the actual 'entrepreneur'.
      The houses were built in 185562, possibly by the bricklayer George Fairweather of Poplar, who witnessed most of the deeds of sale. Again Bracebridge was probably the responsible architect, with T. W. Fletcher claiming, as at No. 136, the actual designing of No. 146, for Carter. (ref. 535)
      All, except No. 146, contained shops or, at No. 144, a 'Commercial Hotel and Coffee House', (ref. 536) which had deteriorated by 1881 to a working-men's lodging house filled with 25 inmates. (ref. 537)
      At the 40ft-wide site of Nos 148152 the local surgeon, Thomas Gray, who had property interests north of the High Street and elsewhere in Poplar, leased the whole for 90 years in 1855, took a ground rent of 30 per annum, and indirectly created a slum. His lessee was a 'blind-maker and builder', David Caldow Simpson of Commercial Road East. (ref. 538) In 18556 Simpson built three narrow houses over shops at Nos 148152, (ref. 539) but instead of allowing them the deep gardens of their neighbours laid out a north-south row of houses behind them called Simpson's Road. The fact that the houses were called Frederick's Cottages suggests that Simpson was associated in this enterprise with another local builder, Frederick William Simpson.
      The approach to Simpson's Road from the High Street, east of No. 152, was only 10ft wide, which led the district surveyor to bring a case against D. C. Simpson under the powers given to the Metropolitan Buildings Office. The case collapsed because No. 152 had not then been built, and by the time it was the Metropolitan Buildings Office had itself disappeared. (ref. 540) Simpson's original idea was to build ten tiny houses measuring 12ft by 10ft. This he changed to six L-shaped houses, (ref. 541) although they were occupied as seven or eight. In 1881 there were 65 people living in them, the heads of households including two charwomen, two labourers and a sweep. (ref. 542) The houses, islanded in an alleyway, were less hemmed in than some slums off the High Street, but by 1889 were condemned to closure by the Poplar Board of Works as unfit for human habitation chiefly, it seems, because of damp and the thoroughly bad condition of the buildings. They were closed in 18912, but not demolished. (ref. 543) In 1951 a Mr J. G. Simpson sold the freehold of Nos 16 Simpson's Road to the London County Council for 400. (ref. 544)
      Eastward, the Stocks owned a house of respectable width standing back from the street at No. 154, where a Mrs Stock lived in 1852. (ref. 545) The family no longer used the house after Simpson's Road was built next door and the architect Henry Stock (c18241909), Edward's nephew, of the firm of Snooke & Stock, built a singlestorey shop on part of its frontage in 1867. (ref. 546)

      Nos 213215 were perhaps built by David Caldow Simpson in association with Frederick Simpson. They had an interest in, and probably built, the adjacent Nos 217221, and their associate, the local auctioneer John Carter, had the sewer laid in front of this stretch of houses and by 1857 had a lien on Nos 213215. (ref. 306) The Simpsons and Carter may therefore have developed Nos 213221 or 223 jointly. Nos 213215 are set back originally behind forecourts projecting on the pavement, where a central gate led to paired front doors. The block plans are mirrored, with small rear wings. (ref. 307) Behind later shops the stock-brick fronts with (originally) undressed straight-headed window-openings rise through three storeys to finish with a block cornice and parapet, behind which dormer windows are set in the front slope of a slated mansard roof. The party wall is carried up above the roof-line. Between the house-fronts is a tablet incised EMMA PLACE. The rear is similar but the heads of the windows are not gauged and there is no parapet. To judge from No. 213 the interiors are without interest, although that house contains original features, such as the dog-leg staircase with square-section balusters and round, simply turned newels, the plainest of chimneypieces and skirting boards, and some simple joinery. No. 215 was occupied as a lodging house by the 1860s. In 1899 the occupants were an auctioneer (No. 213) and a building society (No. 215) but in 1902 the auctioneer covered most of the back garden of No. 213 with a workshop. (ref. 308)
      Nos 217223 were built at the same time, probably by the Simpsons, under the name of Trafalgar Terrace. They were in commercial use from the beginning and are now much altered. (ref. 309)

    Simpson's Road
    This is the location of 1-6 Simpson's Road, Poplar, London, some of the property owned by David Caldow Simpson (1811-1899), and is just to the north of Docklands. It would have been inherited by William David Simpson but due to his premature death was taken instead by his brother David Caldow Simpson (b.1860). It was sold by his son John Graydon Simpson to the local council in 1951.

    This is the location of 1-6 Simpson's Road, Poplar, London, just some of the property owned by David Caldow Simpson (1811-1899) and left to his son William David Simpson. London's wealthy Docklands area is just to the south; you can see a Docklands Light Railway train in the background.

    Unfortunately William David Simpson died three years before his father (something his father's will had not allowed for) so his line did not inherit and his share was divided among the other children. This property went to David Caldow Simpson (b.1860), and was sold by his son John Graydon Simpson to the local council in 1951.
