Sparrows Can't Sing

1) The family home is located in Cowley Gardens, Stepney

2) There are two nice photos of the road in the 1990 railway book titled "Great Eastern in Town and Country" in the article "Mean Streets", which covers Fenchurch Street to Shadwell line.

3) The photos feature the railway arch, in the twenties, that crosses th raod and has nice views both north and south. The arch is featured quite prominently in the film.

4) The main evidence is the distinctive housing in the road that was a design based on model housing supported by the Prince Consort and displayed at the Great Exhibition in 1851. The design was later rebuilt.
