The borough of Stepney
Photo taken by John Gay. “On a cold day a woman walks past the Chevrah Shass Synagogue, which is tucked away down an alley. The carriage archway from the street is flanked by local shops.”
For my latest villain (she’s not so bad, but she does tend to blow things up poor dear) I was looking for an area of London where she could set up a home base.
Stepney is the borough I chose because it was a friendly place for immigrants, which my villain is.
It’s in East London, on the North side of the Thames.
