|Description: The fine facade of the Soup Kitchen for the Jewish Poor (1902) in Brune Street, in the former Jewish East End. Like the Poor Jews’ Shelter in Leman Street, this was a charity financed by wealthier Jews.
The soup kitchen is long gone and the building has been converted into expensive flats for the affluent, but the striking façade has been preserved.|
