The trainline still passes the factory building today. Though it's been convered into flats.

Bryant & May's match factory in Fairfield Road, Bow looking towards Stratford, now known as the Bow Quarter. A heavily industrialised background mixed with terraced residential property is quite visible.



Bryant & May was also the site of one of the first successful industrial strikes in 1888 by female workers over working conditions many who suffered from the disease phossy jaw caused by working with white phosphorus.

Now converted into apartments, the factory is one of the few surviving features in this photo, apart from the railway line into Liverpool Street. Those that survived the war didn't survive the urban planners. The area to the northeast was swept away by the Blackwall tunnel approach in the 1970s, the A12 extension in the 1990s and now the Olympic stadium complex. Even many of the 1930s industrial buildings constructed after this photo was taken are now long gone.
