More Alms



This is another Alms House, Trinity House in Mile End Road, the inscription is worth repeating here:
wherein 28 decayed Masters and Commanders of Ships or ye widows of such are maintain'd' were built by the Corporation of Trinity House in 1695. The ground was given by Captain Henry Mudd of Ratcliff, an elder brother whose widow did also contribute
You're looking at the chapel, the houses are much less grand and mostly restored from being bombed in the war.
