Dalrymple Place or Prospect Street?

"A friend thinks that this photograph is of either the back of Dalrymple Place, or the back of a stair in Prospect Street."

Dalrymple Place?

"Prospect Street, like most of Arthur Street, was about five to six flights of  stairs.  I should know as I sold broken sticks to people when I was wee.

St Leonard's District -  1920s

In the photo above, the building is only 3 flights, so I would guess it was Dalrymple Place.  The hooses are wee compared to Arthur Street.

Eric Gold, East London:  July 28, 2008.

We still don't know whether the photo is of Dalrymple Place or not;  but Dalrymple Place is certainly closer than Prospect Street to the area where the rest of the photos in this St Leonard's series were taken.

Not Dalrymple Place

"This building is not Dalrymple Place.  The reasons being the flat roof.  Dalrymple Place had a pitched roof.

The window with bars on it could be a stair window. Dalrymple Place.  There were stairs at the back of the building in Dalrymple Place.  If memory serves me right, they were three flights high.  I know because I used to deliver papers up this stair."
