Photo 8: Limehouse Cut

Limehouse Cut, then and now, dated grunge

Ex-Tweed House, Teviot Street, Poplar, London E14

• Vici MacDonald on the Limehouse Cut photo: “Le Corbusian Tweed House was once an award-winning council block, and though one side faces the A12’s interminable roar, it also has fine views of Limehouse Cut. But now, just as that canal is being spruced up, Tweed House has been decanted of residents and demolished to make way for a “landmark” tower. Funny, that.”
