Phil Maxwell In Hanbury St
Originally known as Browne’s Lane, at the end of the eighteenth century Hanbury St was named after Sampson Hanbury who ran the Truman Brewery from 1788. It traverses Spitalfields connecting Commercial St with Whitechapel and is less than a mile in length, yet all the contrasts of the neighbourhood are visible along its extent. Contributing Photographer Phil Maxwell knows this better than most since he began photographing it in 1982, observing the changes as he walked daily between his home in Pauline House at the Vallance Rd end and The Golden Heart on the corner of Commercial St to the west.
