These aerial photographs, taken in 1965 and 1963 respectively, show Victoria Park to the north, with RomanRoad on the south. You can see the distinctive figure of eight that shapes the estate - Mace Road.
The higher blocks are named after towns from around the world that Bethnal Green is twinned with - Velletri, St Gilles, Offenbach, Alzette, Modling and Puteaux - while the smaller buildings are named after roads that were razed to build the estate.
This picture shows the low-rise Stubbs House in the foreground, with two of the 15-storey blocks in the rear.

Recently some revamp projects have been proposed for the estate, including the ambitious Cranbrook Lunar Lighthouse - by Paticas Architecture.
