As you can see, Bacon Street is E1 London. It’s another street that runs east from Brick Lane, this time just north of the overground tracks.

below: A portrait, a tribute to Charlie Burns 1915-2012. Charlie, The King of Bacon Street, was the oldest man on the street. He used to sit in the backseat of his daughter’s car and watch the world go past on nearby Brick Lane. The car was parked in front the family business, C.E. Burns & Sons, a second hand furniture store.
